PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Delaware Valley managed to escape the brunt of the recent storm, but the ripple effects are still being felt throughout the area.
Around 160 flights at Philadelphia International Airport were delayed or canceled Saturday after around 250 were canceled on Friday. An airport spokesman said 32 people had to spend the night at the airport.
“I kept a close eye on the storm just because my flight coming to Philadelphia, I was concerned it might be canceled, but it wasn’t,” traveler George Hall said.
Saturday morning Amtrak announced all service between New York and Boston was down. Limited service between the two cities will be restored on Sunday.
SEPTA was moving without any major problems on Saturday. Officials say some buses took detours due to the weather, but for the most part passengers weren’t inconvenienced.
PennDOT crews were still on the road Saturday night in some areas. In Doylestown, crews were removing drifting snow and salting roads that were still wet.
“Drive safe, take your time and watch for the icy conditions,” Al Hughes with PennDOT advises.
