East coast hit by holiday storm; hundreds of flights canceled

On one of the busiest days for travel in the United States, a holiday storm hit the east coast on Wednesday. It’s not as bad as many anticipated, but the wet and windy weather has still managed to cause the cancelation of approximately 250 flights in Philadelphia, New York, and Newark.

Compared to the 32,000 or so flights that were scheduled overall in the U.S., that isn’t too bad.

The storm developed over the weekend in the west and is responsible for 12 fatal car crashes.  Luckily, as it moved east, it seemed to lessen in fury. By the time it hit the east coast, it was mostly just rain and wind.

According to AAA, over 43 million people are expected to travel by road or air this weekend. More than three million will be flying.
