Monday morning brought severe thunderstorms, powerful winds and even snow to the Midwest and Northeast, leaving travelers trying to board early flights to deal with delays and cancellations.

The National Weather Service revealed thunderstorm and tornado warnings and watches were issued early Monday for parts of Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Winds reached top speeds of 70 miles per hour in some areas.

According to FlightAware.com, over 470 flights within, into or out of the U.S. were canceled already Monday and another 840-plus flights were delayed. Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport were the most impacted by the storm system.

On Sunday, over 2,100 flights in the United States were canceled and another 8,300-plus were delayed.

The majority of the largest airlines in the U.S. have not issued travel advisories for the storms, but travelers are encouraged to call their carrier before heading to the airport to ensure their flight is not delayed or canceled.
