Storms Cause Delays At Philly International  
  (AP) PHILADELPHIA Airlines canceled or delayed flights as thunderstorms rolled across the Philadelphia region Tuesday. An airport spokeswoman said hundreds of passengers were stranded at Philadelphia International Airport overnight as bad weather in Philadelphia and other cities caused hundreds of cancellations.

   Airport officials handed out disposable pillows, blankets and snacks to about 750 people who spent the night in Philadelphia. Others endured long waits in planes that arrived but could not get to the gates. By 5 a.m. Wednesday, officials said operations were returning to normal and only a handful of cancellations remained. With more thunderstorms possible in the Wednesday forecast, travelers are advised to check on their flights before going to the airport.
