Blizzard in Calgary Causes Flight Cancelations

On Monday a blizzard swept through the Calgary area, causing problems on the roads and flight cancelations.  Part of the Trans-Canada Highway was closed and all school buses were taken off the roads.  A total of 15-25 cm of snow is expected to fall by Tuesday, keeping snow removal crews busy throughout the city.  However, plows were taken off the roads on the Trans-Canada Highway at Highway 21 due to high winds of up to 80 km per hour and zero visibility.


At Calgary International Airport, there were dozens of flight disruptions.  A total of 34 departing flights and 36 arrivals were canceled by noon on Monday due to the storm.  According to Calgary Airport Authority spokesperson Jody Moseley, many other flights were delayed as airport crews worked hard to de-ice the planes and clear the runways.  The Environment Canada forecast for Tuesday for Calgary is 2 cm of snow with a high of -15C and a windchill of -29C.
