WASHINGTON (AP) — Operations are returning to normal at the airports serving Washington and Baltimore a day after a winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of the region.

Airport officials say some of Friday's flights have been canceled, but all runways are open and the airports are busy as passengers try to get to their destinations.

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport was the hardest-hit by the storm, and airlines were struggling to recover on Friday afternoon. At 1:30 p.m., more than 40 percent of outgoing flights were delayed or canceled, and nearly four out of five arriving flights were delayed or canceled.

Amtrak's Northeast Corridor and Acela Express trains were operating on a limited schedule Friday. Amtrak says regular service will resume Saturday.
