Crews were clearing snow from runways and other surfaces at Maryland’s Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall) on Monday, January 3, as a winter storm dumped at least half a foot of snow in the Washington DC area.
A half-million customers were without power in Virginia and Maryland due to the storm, the Washington Post reported. As much as a foot of snow fell south of Washington, the paper said.
This footage, recorded on Monday afternoon, shows crews working to clear snow at BWI Marshall Airport, located south of Baltimore, as well as a flight taking off and landing.
“Our snow team has made significant progress on airfield surfaces in the past hour as the heavy snow winds down,” airport staff tweeted shortly after 2pm.
“Snow plows, blowers and chemical trucks are among the arsenal of heavy equipment to keep airfield surfaces clear,” they had earlier tweeted. Credit: BWI Marshall Airport via Storyful
