ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - If you thought the blizzard conditions on the east coast weren't having an effect on the St. Louis area, you needed look no further than Lambert St. Louis International Airport. A steady stream of more than three dozen flights were showing as cancelled for much of the morning, Saturday.
About 25 departures and 20 arriving flights had all been cut at the peak travel time early Saturday morning. Nearly all of the flights were coming from and heading to the big eastern airports where the blizzard was wreaking the most havoc.
Flights coming from both Washington D. C. are airports, along with Baltimore, Philadelphia, and the three main New York City hubs had all been cancelled. A couple were showing up as on time for later in the afternoon, presumably when forecasters believe the snow will have let up enough to get travelers moving again.
Travelers were clearly heeding warnings to call ahead or check online prior to coming to the airport. There wasn't a stuck passenger to be found at Lambert for much of the morning, despite nearly four dozen flight cancellations.
