Thousands of Flights Cancelled as Brutal Storm Pounds the Northeast-UPDATE 2
Most flights out of the northeast part of the U.S. have been cancelled as a huge storm dumps snow on the region.

Flight-tracking website FlightAware said airlines have canceled more than 4,200 flights on Friday and Saturday in advance of the storm.
The latest tally we now have is 4,700 flights are now cancelled, and that number could rise still.

No BOS till 11 PM….
Logan International Airport will not have a runway open until at least 11 p.m. on Saturday, airport officials said. Authorities pulled crews off the airfield for five hours overnight due to whiteout conditions, causing the snow to pile up. “It’s very tough going and there’s still challenging conditions,” said Matthew Brelis, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs Logan.
