Hurricane Plays Havoc With Commercial, Charter And GA
The FAA is scrambling to get the nation's air traffic system

Isabel ground ashore Thursday. The storm shut down airports from
Raleigh (NC) to San Francisco (CA) in a ripple effect that was
still very much in play on Friday.
"I get the sense we're going to be doing a lot better today than
yesterday, but we're still going to be seeing the ripple effects of

spokeswoman Laura Brown said Friday morning. More than 5,700
flights were cancelled Thursday because of the storm.

International was shut down for the worst of the storm. It's
reopening was delayed even further because of the massive power
outages that accompanied the storm.
"Our message is: Don't come to the airport without checking with
your airline first," said Tara Hamilton, a spokeswoman for the
Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.

Trains were shut down from Chicago to Miami and at all points in
between as officials checked the rails for storm damage.
