Airport spokesman Michael Conway said all four parallel runways have reopened but flights stopped for a couple hours Saturday morning when the entire airfield "iced over at once." Overnight crews applied de-icing fluid and sand, but he says freezing rain "overwhelmed our work."

A Delta spokesman said that none of the 160 passengers or six crew members were injured.(AP Photo/Detroit News, Daniel Mears)  DETROIT FREE PRESS OUT; HUFFINGTON POST OUT
