NEW YORK (AP) -- New York's airports are letting some flights land after digging out from under nearly a foot of snow, while Boston's Logan Airport remains closed. Logan says it expects to open one runway by 11 p.m.
Across the region, flights are expected to be back on close to normal schedules tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Amtrak says the New York-Boston train route will remain closed today as crews clear tracks of snow and fallen trees. Trains are running south from New York, and between New York and Albany.
Airports in the Northeast shut down Friday afternoon as the big blizzard blew in. The storm brought more than 2 feet of snow in some parts of New England and left more than 650,000 homes and businesses without power at its peak.
Flight-tracking website FlightAware says airlines canceled 5,368 flights because of the storm.

Fallin signs bill to spend $45M on tornado relief
May 24, 2013 19:07 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Gov. Mary Fallin has signed a bill that will allow the state to access $45 million from the state's Rainy Day Fund to help communities recover from tornado damage.
Fallin on Friday signed a bill that the House and Senate passed unanimously in the wake of the deadly tornado that raked across the state on Monday, killing 24 people and injuring hundreds more.
It allows the state to use the money to match federal disaster funds and for other "disaster-related assistance."
The state's Rainy Day Fund, a constitutional reserve fund, currently has a balance of about $577 million. Up to 25 percent of the money can be accessed to pay for emergency-related expenses. The rest is reserved for when the state experiences budget shortfalls.
