Travelers attempting to fly across the country right now may experience some serious delays at airports because of the winter storm happening in the northeast of the country.
NBC News reports more than 2,000 flights have been cancelled and nearly 6,000 have been delayed, as of Friday.
But, local airports across the Central Coast said planes are moving in and out of the area as scheduled.
San Luis Obispo Airport manager Kevin Bumen said flights in and out of his airport on Friday had been relatively on schedule. Fog in Los Angeles held up one flight. But, the big storm back east hasn't affected flights out of San Luis Obispo or Santa Maria, he said.
"It's important to check the status of your flight all the way through to the destination. Talk to the airline, try to get an understanding of what your entire travel day looks like, and be prepared for some possible delays if you are traveling into the northeast," said Bumen.
Bumen said in the event that the storm in the northeast does start affecting flights out of San Luis Obispo, they will try their best to make all passengers comfortable until they can get on their way.
