Airport director Mark Kranenburg said the airlines were not able to get any aircraft into Oklahoma City last night.  Almost all flights after 5 p.m. Monday were canceled.

"It just made the early morning departures impossible this morning," he said.

Kranenburg said airport crews are working to keep the runway clear, but travel remained difficult.

"By and large, the schedule for the day is being canceled," he said.

Passengers are encouraged to contact their airline for flight information or to rebook a canceled flight. Airline information is available at flyokc.com.
