Thousands of Flights Canceled As Winter Storm Dumps Snow and Ice

Airlines have canceled an estimated 11,000 flights over the past two days as a massive winter storm coated the Midwest and Northeast with snow and ice. Many airports in the affected areas were closed or had very limited flight operations. Several airlines have allowed passengers to change their travel plans free of fees.

Air travel is not the only thing affected; many businesses are shut down and people are urged to stay off the roads. Widespread power outages are expected. The storm affects some thirty states.

Parts of Missouri, Indiana, Kansas, and New York have already been blanketed with a foot or more of snow while other states have seen even more.
