U.S. storms cause Tampa International Airport flight delays

Travelers at Tampa International Airport felt the effects of a winter storm that dumped heavy snow in the Midwest and was bearing down Wednesday on the Northeast.

Two dozen flights scheduled in and out of the airport through 7 p.m. were delayed, said Tampa International Airport spokeswoman Christine Osborn. Only one flight, a Southwest Airlines departure to Manchester, N.H., was canceled. The airport handles about 480 total flights daily.

Worst hit were flights involving the three metropolitan New York airports, Osborn said. Charlotte and Boston also were experiencing flight delays late this afternoon, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

"Everything is still going out, and most got in pretty much on time,'' Osborn said.

Travelers and people picking up passengers should check the Web sites of specific airlines for updated information.
