BLIZZRAD IN U.SA.: Hundreds of Flights Canceled in Denver as Blizzard Hits Colorado

 A powerful blizzard swept through Colorado on Saturday, dumping at least 2 feet (61 cm) of snow in some parts of the state and forcing the cancellation of most of the scheduled flights at the Denver airport, officials said.
United Airlines [UALCO.UL] canceled all of its flights to and from Denver International Airport, the airport said in a statement.

All told, more than 800 flights were grounded on Saturday, or more than 65 percent of all scheduled take-offs and landings at the airport, the FlightAware airline tracking website showed. Dozens of other flights were delayed.
Denver International is the fourth-largest hub for United Airlines and Southwest Airlines, and the primary hub for Frontier Airlines, according to its website.
A representative for the airport did not immediately return a call or email seeking comment.
The heavy snow began falling on Friday night and was expected to continue through Sunday, the National Weather Service said.
