Powerful Spring Blizzard Shuts Down Denver Airport, Stranding Travelers
The snowstorm crippled travel across the region, and marked the first time in nearly a decade the airport was closed due to snow conditions.
A powerful Spring blizzard blanketed northeastern Colorado in a foot of snow Wednesday, crippling the region's transportation and stranding thousands of travelers.
Low visibility resulted in the cancellation of 738 flights, the Denver Post reported. The airport, like thousands of other residents in the Denver area, also briefly lost power.
A blizzard warning remained in effect until 6 p.m., the National Weather Service said.
The storm left travelers stranded for hours, with no way to leave the airport terminal.
