A nor’easter is causing a number of flight cancellations between the East Coast and San Francisco International Airport Wednesday, an airport spokeswoman said.
After superstorm Sandy made landfall Monday evening and continued to wreak havoc along the Eastern Seaboard from Virginia to Massachusetts, the Bay Area is responding to the natural disaster.
As post-tropical cyclone Sandy battered much of the East Coast with strong winds, flooding and even blizzards Tuesday morning, many airports remained shut down and dozens of flights were canceled at Bay Area airports.
Andrew Luck and No. 6 Stanford will spend a huge chunk of the weekend on an airplane. They want nothing more than a happy flight home.
The big blizzard that’s blanketed the Midwest and East Coast continues to dump heavy snow, and that’s causing havoc at Bay Area airports for flights headed east.
A number of flights have been canceled or delayed at SFO as a result of stormy weather on the East Coast. The delays and cancellations numbering several dozen or more, mostly affect flights going into and out of the cities of Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Washington, DC.
The storm that shut down much of the south, has churned north, brining wet heavy snow to the Northeast, and now the weather is impacting flights bound to or from the region.
