Winter storm halts all flights in Dublin

Winter weather is halting all flights in and out of Dublin Airport, with authorities saying they are unlikely to resume until Saturday.
The airport says Aer Lingus, Ryanair and other carriers are suspending operations Thursday afternoon as Ireland braces for a fierce storm. It says airlines “are likely to resume operations on Saturday morning.”
Irish Rail also says no trains are likely to run until Saturday.
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has urged people to get home by 4 p.m. Thursday and stay home until the storm has passed. He says the forecast predicts blizzards, 100 kph (60 mph) winds, zero visibility and deep pockets of snow.
Varadkar says “the risk to life and limb presented by severe weather conditions should not be underestimated.”
