ATLANTA (AP) — Airline officials say hundreds of flights with Atlanta connections will be canceled because of a winter storm.

Southwest Airlines spokesman Brad Hawkins says Southwest and AirTran have canceled all flights departing from Atlanta on Wednesday. Hawkins says the exact number of flights that have been canceled is unclear, but the airlines operate about 160 departures from Atlanta daily.

Hawkins says the airlines are hoping to resume normal operations on Thursday morning.

Delta Airlines spokesman Morgan Durrant says the airline has canceled more than 1,580 flights system-wide, with a vast majority either departing or landing in Atlanta.
