PARIS - Snow-choked European cities are struggling to get planes, trains and roads moving again after a surprisingly intense, late-season storm.

A few flights were canceled Wednesday and many were facing long delays at Paris` Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports and the Frankfurt Airport.

Eurostar train service under the English Channel resumed Wednesday after being suspended most of Tuesday, but trains were running much more slowly than usual because of the icy tracks, causing delays.

Thousands of cars were stuck or moving slowly on roads around northern France Wednesday morning as authorities - and the army - tried to clear snow. Tens of thousands of homes in northern France remain without electricity, with temperatures below freezing across the region.

Belgium was still suffering long train delays Wednesday.
