    Holiday travel getting hectic as nasty storm moves east

    Winter storm moving east expected to cause delays, cancellations at airports on the east coast; travelers arriving at Logan Airport to beat rush (Published Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014)

    (NECN: John Moroney) – It is the calm before the storm, both literally and figuratively, at Logan Airport in Boston.

    Thanksgiving is only a couple of days away and people are worried about traveling during some pretty messy weather.

    Traveler Sheema Mitra said, “I just pray to god that everybody who are coming in for their Thanksgiving family get-together, have a great family get-together and make it before the storm.”

    A nasty storm is moving up the east coast just in time for the holiday. It’s forecasted to hit the Mid-Atlantic Tuesday and the rest of the Northeast by Wednesday, making travel difficult, and in some cases, dangerous.

    AAA says more than 43 million Americans will be on the move for Thanksgiving. Most of them will be driving to their destinations. About three million people will fly.

    Delays and cancellations are expected at airports up and down the east coast over the next 48 hours.
