OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The day after heavy snow hit the Pacific Northwest, people are dealing with icy roads, power outages and the dangers of snow causing flooding when it melts.

Ice on three runways shut down Sea- Tac Airport this morning. Spokesman Perry Cooper told KOMO-TV crews hoped deicer would allow it to reopen before airlines had to cancel very many flights.

Morning commuters also found icy streets in the Seattle area. Transportation Department trucks are out spreading salt and deicer.
