Delays, cancelations reported at Northeast airports due to winter storm
Snow creating travel issues from the mid-Atlantic into the Northeast and New England
NEW YORK - Major delays have been reported at airports across the Northeast as a fast-moving winter storm brought snow and ice to the region on Thursday.
A ground stop had been implemented at LaGuardia Airport in New York City earlier in the morning because of the snow and ice. The FAA lifted the ground stop around 11 a.m.
A burst of snow has been impacting travel from the mid-Atlantic into the Northeast and New England on Thursday, creating snow-covered and slippery roads and affecting flights departing and arriving at the region's airports.
More than 200 flights have been canceled at John F. Kennedy International Airport as of Thursday morning. Passengers are being encouraged to check directly with airlines about delays before heading to the airport.
Other airports in the Northeast, like Boston Logan International Airport, Philadelphia International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport have all seen dozens of delays or cancellations because of the storm.
The FAA says delays were also reported at Bradley International Airport in Hartford and at Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport in Providence because of deicing earlier on Thursday morning.
Anyone driving in areas where snow or ice has been falling is also reminded to allow for extra time to ensure they arrive at their destinations safely.
