MSP, Mpls. City Crews Prep For Thursday’s SnowThursday's snow storm will have a major impact on travelers, and it could have a long-lasting effect on anyone who parks on Minneapolis streets. Patrick Hogan, spokesperson for Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, says they've got a full 24-hour staff on standby to plow. But fewer runways will be in use, and he expects small regional flights to be canceled first. "Based on the forecast, it's pretty clear they are not going to be able to fly the full schedule, so they'll start canceling flights later tonight," Hogan said. "Normally, [there are ] between 60 and 90 flights an hour. Tomorrow, we're expecting more like between 25 and 35 flights an hour."
