Around 28 inches of snow fell over parts of north-east America during the weekend. The winter storm called Nemo left thousands of passengers stranded as an estimated 7,000 flights were cancelled.
Boston’s Logan International Airport and the three airports serving New York were the worst affected by the storm. According to Flightstats, 4,136 flights were cancelled on Friday, 2,092 on Saturday and 535 on Sunday. Only 88 cancellations are expected today, though some US airports are still experiencing heavy delays.
British Airways and Virgin Atlantic were forced to cancel services to New York and Boston as the storm continued through the weekend. BA cancelled all its flight from London, New York and Boston on the Friday.
Around 25 million people are said to have been affected in some way by Nemo, with residents in New York and the surrounding areas still recovering from Sandy, which hit the area back in October. The National Weather Service in America has said the past weekend saw the heaviest snowfall in some cities for a century.
Around 345,00 houses are said to still be without power after the storm hit America and drivers have been advised to stay off the roads until the snow clears away fully.
