The San Francisco International Airport is mostly closed, according to the FAA. Most inbound and outbound planes are canceled but SFO is currently stating that they will open up two runways shortly. The decision to close the airport was made after a Boeing 777, Asiana flight 214 from Seoul, crashed as it was landing in San Francisco at 11:30 Pacific Time.
