Most airline flights this morning are cancelled in and out of Raleigh-Durham International Airport, but both runways are open and a few cargo and airline flights are landing.
About 75 departing flights have been cancelled. A Delta flight from Indianapolis and a Continental flight from Newark were diverted to other airports, but a US Airways flight from Dulles arrived on time at 7:45 a.m. Several other inbound flights were listed as in flight at 9 a.m. [Updated 9:05 a.m.]
“If the freezing rain keeps falling, we may see more cancellations later this morning,” RDU spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin said. “There are some that are set to take off at 9 a.m.”
Airport crews worked overnight to clear snow and ice from runways. "We continue to treat them, and roadways and parking areas as well," she said.
The frozen weather has crippled airports across much of the south. Red dots on the flightstats.com page indicate similar airport woes across the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama and northern Florida.
