According to NPR and The Daily Mail, thousands of flights were delayed and hundreds were canceled across the airports in the United States as severe weather hampered travel on one of the busiest holiday travel weekends of the year.
More than 6,000 flights were delayed, and 178 were canceled as of Sunday, according to FlightAware.
A severe weather system is to blame for many of the delays and cancellations as travelers tried to get back home after the Thanksgiving holiday.
The three major airports servicing New York City and the Tri-state area advised travelers to arrive early for their flights over the Thanksgiving holiday and to be prepared for similar disruptions throughout the holiday season.
Airports are also warning travelers about delays and other disruptions to their travel.
