Snow closes schools in Durango, slows Denver flights


DENVER | A winter storm moving across Colorado has shut down schools in the Durango area and is slowing down flights at Denver International Airport.

It’s the latest in a series of storm to hit in and around Durango this week, where up to a foot of snow is already on the ground. The Durango Herald reports that schools were also closed on Thursday.

Denver and Colorado Springs each got about 2 inches by Friday morning and a few more inches are expected before the storm moves out later in the day.

The FAA is spacing out traffic at Denver International Airport and arriving flights are expected to be delayed by about an hour. Those delays along with deicing are expected to also delay outgoing flights.
