SEATTLE (CBS Seattle/AP) — Airlines are doing their best Friday to accommodate passengers whose flights were canceled at Sea-Tac Airport because of the storm, but more cancellations today are making that task difficult.

The largest carrier at the airport, Alaska Airlines, planned to operate only about 60 percent of its Seattle schedule .  Spokeswoman Bobbie Egan says it expects to be fully operational Saturday, and the last passengers whose flights were canceled should be traveling by Sunday.

Alaska and sister airline Horizon canceled 310 flights to and from Seattle on Thursday, affecting 29,000 passengers.
Amtrak trains aren’t running Friday between Seattle and Portland, because of trees and other debris that fell on the tracks.
Fallen trees still close most of Highway 18 between Federal Way and North Bend. Transportation Department spokeswoman Kris Olsen says it’s uncertain when crews will have it reopen. Highway 410 also is closed.
