Briefs: Storm has little impact on Midlands air travelers

Feb 2, 2011 8:04:00 PM - thestate.com
Air travel through Columbia Metropolitan Airport has been little affected by a monstrous winter storm moving across the northern U.S., according to local reports. Only two flights — to Chicago and Dallas — were canceled Wednesday, said airport spokeswoman Lynne Douglas, and two cancellations were reported on Tuesday, to New York and Chicago. As the Columbia area reveled in unseasonable temperatures in the low to mid-60s, and coastal S.C. residents welcomed temperatures in the mid-70s, Chicagoans dealt with aftereffects of the third-worst storm in history, according to televised reports. Temperatures today in the Midlands are only expected to reach the low 40s.
