Travel Recovering From Multi-State Blackout
Power was restored today in most of the eastern United States following a major blackout that affected several cities in U.S. and Canada, including New York, NY; Boston, Mass.; Cleveland, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Toronto, Ontatrio; and Ottawa, Ontario. Air traffic is slowly beginning to return to normal today following a virtual halt at several major U.S. and Canadian airports.

According to a report from Reuters on Yahoo!, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) allowed New York-area airports to reopen Thursday night. Airports from New York to Toronto, Cleveland and Detroit began to restore operations today, with some delays expected. The FAA does not know how many total flights were affected by the power outage overall.
