QUEENS, NY (CBS/WCBS) - The pictures are incredible. LaGuardia Airport will remain closed until this mess can be cleaned up.
The runways look more like waterways at LaGuardia and the Port Authority still has no timetable for when it will be fully operational.
They must inspect damage to facilities and runways before they can make that call. Stranded travelers may have to wait several days to get out.
Airline carries aren't able to fly full schedules for several days. American Airlines and US Airways said they were aiming for Thursday to resume full service to and from New York, while Delta said they hoped to resume all flights to JFK today.
