DENVER (AP) -- About 60 flights from Denver to the East Coast and another 65 scheduled to arrive at the airport are being canceled because of Hurricane Sandy.

Denver International Airport officials said Monday the canceled flights are among 1,700 arrivals and departures the airport handles every day.

Hurricane Sandy has grounded thousands of flights across the country, threatening to bring a near halt to air travel for at least two days in a key region for both domestic and international flights.

Airport officials say they expect 60 arrival cancellations and 50 departure cancellations Tuesday.
