Snowstorm Slows Runway Traffic
Before you head to the airport today and tomorrow, do yourself a favor and check with your airline carrier to see if your flight has been delayed or canceled. The US is getting its second snow punch of 2011, and the governors of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Tennessee have already declared states of emergency.
An estimated 1900 flights were cancelled in/out of Atlanta today, and more cancellations are expected in DC and New York as the snowstorm continues its path north along the Atlantic coast. By Wednesday, snow fall totals could reach as much as 9 inches in New York and a foot in New England.
