As post-tropical cyclone Sandy battered much of the East Coast with strong winds, flooding and even blizzards this morning, many airports remained shut down and dozens of flights were canceled at Bay Area airports.
Mid-morning, 114 flights had been canceled at San Francisco International Airport, a duty manager said. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, seven airports remained shut down Tuesday afternoon because of the storm, including John F.

There is no estimated time when the airports will reopen. SFO has also seen cancellations of flights going to and from Boston, Baltimore, both Washington D.C. airports and Philadelphia, airport duty manager Shannon Wilson said.
