Fallout From the Spring Storm
The slushy spring storm has brought more than a foot of snow to most places along the Front Range (and is still falling in places this morning), crippling cities, closing schools, causing power outages and a slew of accidents, and prompting long, ongoing delays at Denver International Airport. "The FAA has imposed a ground hold on flights arriving into DIA, so right now nothing is arriving so we can clean the backlog of departures," DIA spokesperson Chuck Cannon tells 9News. Tom Henley of Xcel Energy tells 7News thousands customers in the Denver metro area lost power last night. This morning, many are still without, according to Xcel's Electric Outage Map, which highlights multiple outages. Thankfully, school buses and minivans aren't part of the commute this morning along highways that have been clogged with accidents. A long list of schools are closed or will open late (via The Denver Post). The storm is expected to move out of the Denver area later today, notes 9News.
