Airports around the country are canceling hundreds of flights as snow starts to fall around the Northeast in what’s predicted to be a large blizzard.
Nationwide, about 3,000 flights have been impacted by the storm.
By noon on Friday, 51 departures from Charlotte to the Northeast had been canceled. Thirty-three incoming flights from the Northeast had also been canceled.
Friday morning, Eyewitness News talked to some people headed to New York and Toronto who had to spend the night because of the cancelations. It's expected to get worse Friday afternoon. Flights headed to places like Boston, Hartford and Portland, Maine have been canceled.
A man headed home to his family in New York said he's hoping to get into the air before things get really bad.
“The flight before it was actually canceled, so I'm pretty nervous that it will be canceled, but the weather in New York just started to snow, so I'm optimistic I can beat it,” Adam Procell said.
Eyewitness News checked, and cancelations to the Northeast will continue well into the evening hours, so if you're headed to that area, check with your airline.
