GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - If you expected to jet off to the East Coast today, March 14, it's not happening.
A powerful, late-season winter storm working its way up the coast has prompted the cancellation of thousands of flights across the country. At Grand Rapids' Gerald R. Ford International Airport, 13 departures and arrivals from cities like Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York are among those canceled as of 11:30 a.m.
Two flights to Washington Dulles International Airport are scheduled, however, where impacts from the winter storm will be less significant: a 2:56 p.m. departure and 7:12 p.m. arrival on United Airlines.
The bulls-eye for the largest snowfall amounts roughtly is along a line from about Philadelphia, Albany and into Boston, where blizzard and winter storm warnings are in effect. At least a foot of snow is forecast to fall in spots.
Check with your airline in case travel arrangements are necessary. Here's a list of those affected at Ford Airport:
