Event

A winter storm has prompted severe transportation disruptions over several states in the northwest and Midwest of the US on Wednesday, November 27. Affected states include South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado, and Wisconsin, though California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and New York are expected to be affected on Thursday, November 28. Many of these states remain under a winter weather watch as of Thursday.

Hundreds of flights have been canceled since, and more flight disruptions are likely to continue throughout the day. For example, media reports indicate that over 500 flights were canceled in Denver. Travel conditions are therefore expected to be difficult.  Power outages have also been reported in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, among other states.

Significant transportation disruptions including dangerous driving conditions and flight delays and cancelations are expected to continue throughout Tuesday and possibly into Friday, November 29.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports and anticipate transportation disruptions, including flight delays and cancelations, dangerous driving conditions, and rail service interruptions.
