East Coast Snow Storms Cancel Flights Out Of Nashville

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - While the winter weather has come and gone in Middle Tennessee, back-to-back blizzards have hit the eastern seaboard hard, and it doesn't look like the historic snowfall will be letting up anytime soon.

For the second time in a week, a major storm battered the East Cost with heavy snow and high winds.

New snowfall records have been set for Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Baltimore. The wintry mess even caused a 50 car pile up on Interstate 80 in Philadelphia.

All of the snow has officials concerned about power lines and roof collapses, and it doesn't look like their concerns will be alleviated any time soon. Forecasters said a third storm could be brewing for next week.

This arctic blast just hasn't been affecting the mid-Atlantic. It has sent a ripple effect through the country. Including right here in Middle Tennessee, as people try to travel by plane. 

At least a dozen flights going to the northeast were canceled at the Nashville International Airport Thursday.

An 8:30 a.m. flight going to Baltimore, an 8 a.m. flight going to Newark, N.J., and a 12:45 p.m. flight to Baltimore were just some of the flights canceled out of Nashville Thursday morning.

The key is to call the airline ahead of time or go to www.flynashville.com to check on flights.
