Winter weather knocks out some MBS, Bishop flights


FLINT, MI — Some flights in and out of Flint Bishop and MBS airports were canceled today as a winter storm continued to move across the Great Lakes, dropping as much as a foot of snow in some areas.

Arrivals and departures to Chicago O’Hare are among those listed as canceled for Friday, Feb. 9, according to websites for the airports.

Friday’s weather caused only a handful of accidents in Genesee County and a small power outage in downtown Flint.

Consumers Energy reported just a single outage in the Flint, Saginaw and Bay City areas — an incident that briefly knocked out power to traffic lights in part of downtown Flint.

The National Weather Service issued hazardous weather outlooks for the entire region, calling for snow accumulations of up to 4 inches Friday.

In Genesee County, a winter weather advisory remains in effect until midnight and the Weather Service predicted slippery road conditions and reduced visibilities at times.

Snow is likely again Saturday, Feb. 10, according to the NWS, with around 1 inch of accumulation possible in the Flint area followed by another possible 1 to 3 inches Sunday, Feb. 11.
