BOSTON (AP) - Severe weather in the New York area has forced
some flight diversions to Boston.

As of midday Wednesday, six international flights had diverted
to Logan International Airport after their approach to New York
City airports was hampered by high winds and heavy rains.

Massachusetts Port Authority officials say the flights included
a Lufthansa plane headed from Frankfurt to New York; a British
Airways plane headed from London to Newark, N.J.; and a Korean Air
plane headed from Incheon to New York.

The planes were parked at Logan's international terminal or
North Cargo area before being re-fueled and sent back on their way.

Heavy rain and severe weather knocked out power to thousands in
the mid-Atlantiuc area and New York.
