Storm system delays flights

February 28, 2012, 11:00 am

The Federal Aviation Administration recently announced air traffic delays in Chicago, Atlanta and New York are the result of snowstorms, cloud cover and tornadoes in the eastern half of the United States.

Chicago's O'Hare International Airport reported delays of up to two hours, and New York's LaGuardia Airport had passengers waiting more than an hour to take off. Even flights in Atlanta were seeing 45 minute delays, Bloomberg reported.

"There is a storm up over northern Ohio that is laying down a stripe of snow that is causing all the air traffic delays in Chicago," Paul Walker, a meteorologist at AccuWeather, told the source. "Also associated with this storm there will be a cold front sweeping through the Southeast."

While watchful flight planning can help prevent significant delays, investing in pilot insurance can help prevent financial hardship from mishaps in the sky.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the storm system in Ohio was the result of a pressure system from Saskatchewan, which brought thick, wet snow into the Chicago area, closing several schools and disrupting travel on the roads and in the sky. The National Weather Service reported about 8 inches of snow surrounding Chicago, with an additional 1 to 2 more inches that were possible before the front cleared.
