Heavy fog did not seem to have reached Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, which yesterday was heavily affected by fog, Seto said. A dense fog closed in on coastal areas of Los Angeles last night, affecting air traffic at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said. Low ceilings and gate holds delayed some departures for as long as 45 minutes, said Marshall Lowe of the Los Angeles International Airport. Incoming traffic was running about 15 minutes late, Lowe said. “The fog looks pretty dense,” said Stuart Seto, weather specialist with the National Weather Service. “Right now visibility is down to about quarter of a mile.” last_img
