With heavy snowfall hitting the Twin Cities today forecasting up to 8-10" over the next 24 hours, the Minneapolis/St. Paul International airport has shut down all runway activity for the foreseeable future.
A tweet sent out from the official airport twitter account around 9am Wednesday reads as follows:
Due to low visibility and the fast rate of snowfall, our runways are currently closed. We're hoping to resume operations at 9:30 a.m., if conditions improve. Please contact your airline for your specific flight's status. - @MSPAirport
As of 9:45am only one runway has been reopened.
Conditions have not improved much, but our team was able to safely re-open one of our runways. Please make sure to check with your airline to verify the status of your flight before heading out to MSP Airport today. - @MSPAirport
If you have a flight today out of MSP, stay tuned to their Twitter account, check with your airline and look online to make sure you give yourself the proper time to get checked in and situated.
