Rainstorm cancels several flights in San Francisco International AirportAs the season’s first major Atlantic Coast snowstorm starts to move over the Mid-South, at least five US states have declared emergencies by Thursday afternoon. Thousands of flights were cancelled or delayed as Washington DC, New York and other East Coast cities are ready with fleets of snow plows.

 

 

Extreme conditions are expected to begin on Friday afternoon as blizzard warning was out in the nation’s capital and Baltimore. New York too remains under a blizzard watch for Saturday morning. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, which includes the second-busiest US subway system, said it would suspend operations from late on Friday through Sunday.

 

 

Airlines began cancelling Friday and Saturday flights, with many of the more than 2,220 cancellations for Friday at Washington and North Carolina airports, according to FlightAware.com.

 

 

American Airlines Group Inc scrapped all Friday flights into North Carolina’s Charlotte Douglas International Airport, and Delta Air Lines Inc canceled about 120 flights in the Southeast region. American scrapped most Saturday flights into Washington, New York and Philadelphia, and Delta was poised to cancel many of the same.
