Big Storm Dumps Snow on East Coast, Travel Dicey

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Roads have been slippery in much of the Northeast for this morning's commute to work, as a slow-moving storm that dumped snow and ice on the mid-Atlantic region moves up the coast.

Forecasters say travel problems could linger into the afternoon, with freezing rain and icy conditions sticking around. The wintry weather is extending from Missouri into Maine.

The storm -- which canceled more than 3,200 flights yesterday and delayed thousands more -- has already led to the cancellation of more than 1,300 additional flights today, according to the flight-tracking website Flightaware.com. The biggest share of those flights were from the Dallas-Fort Worth airport, which is still reeling from the effects of the ice storm that brought North Texas to a standstill. Hundreds of people were stranded there last night.

Slippery conditions were reported overnight in the New York City area. One crash involving about 20 vehicles closed southbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Connecticut for a couple of hours. No serious injuries were reported.
