Winter storms along the northeastern United States are causing ripple effects in South Florida.
Shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport reported 69 arrival and departure delays and 22 cancelations as a result of the storm bearing down on the U.S. northeastern coast.
The delays and cancelations are affecting several destinations including Raleigh, N.C., Boston, Mass., New York and Rhode Island.
“These delays are due to the deteriorating weather conditions along the east coast,” airport spokesman Greg Meyer said in an earlier email. “Some of the delays are now up to two hours.”
