Denver International Airport has resumed operations after heavy snowfall hit the state of Colorado over the weekend. The corresponding statement was published on Monday on Twitter at the airport.
“We are back,” the message says. “Four runways are open, and flights are receiving and departing from Denver.” Simultaneously, the airport management stressed that delays and cancellations of some flights are still possible, which are caused by disruptions in the airline schedule.
Over the weekend, the state of Colorado was hit by heavy snowfall. Within two days, more than 2,000 flights were canceled at Denver International Airport. By Sunday evening, the snow cover was 68 cm thick. According to experts interviewed by the Associated Press, this is the fourth-heaviest snowfall in the history of Denver.
In February, due to abnormal frosts and snowfalls in the southern states, millions of people were left without electricity and water. The situation was particularly difficult in Texas when US President Joe Biden ordered federal assistance to local authorities due to the consequences of a severe snowstorm. According to the newspaper The New York Times, the February bad weather victims in the country were 58 people.
