AUSTIN -- The storm hitting the Northeast U.S. is forcing dozens of airports to delay and cancel flights.
In New York the Federal Aviation Administration says snow forced JFK airport to shut down for several hours on Friday. It closed around 5 a.m. and didn't open again until 7:30 a.m.
Immediately airports nationwide started to feel the impact.
According to the Misery Map at flightaware.com, there were more than 1,900 cancellations within the U.S. Friday and more than 1,400 delays. A majority of those flights are coming in and out of New York. LaGuardia reported 36 percent of its flights Friday were cancelled.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is experiencing its share of delays and cancellations, leading to long lines for passengers. The airport reported at least a dozen cancelled and delayed flights early Friday morning. By 10:30 a.m. ABIA posted at least four canceled arrivals and 20 delayed departures.
Passengers are urged to check their flight status before leaving for the airport.
