Transcript for Winter storm prompts thousands of flight delays, cancellations
headaches at airports across the country. Thousands of flights already canceled or delayed. More will be affected this morning. ABC's erielle reshef is at Newark airport in New Jersey with the latest. One of those nights that had passengers sleeping in the terminal. Reporter: That's right, George. That snowstorm turned air travel into a nightmare for so many people who were forced to camp out at airports like this one. We've seen people still sleeping sitting up trying to get comfortable. Overnight those images of people sleeping on cot, on chairs and talked to one woman who left on the concrete floor and we know that JFK and Newark airport tweeted overnight warning people about the treacherous road conditions getting in and out of the terminals. That caused a lot of the delays, three-hour delays at JFK but got a whole lot worse at the height of the storm, up to 2,000 cancellations, 7500 delays and this morning, things are looking up but there's still plenty of problems at the airport. Hundreds of delays and cancellations still expected so people heading to the airport should give themselves plenty of time and, of course, check with their carriers before they head out, robin. All right, erielle, thank you
