LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Conditions in Arkansas are not as bad as those in the east.
As the storm moved from the Midwest to the northeast, nearly 3,000 flights were cancelled in the U.S. on Wednesday alone.
The video attached shows a look at lines at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport from earlier Thursday afternoon.
Many flights reported to be delayed causing much frustration and anger among passengers.
However, the winter storm is said to have moved off shore so for now, folks in the east will get a break from the seemingly non-stop waves of snow and freezing rain.
Hundreds of thousands of people are having to make do without power in frigid temperatures.
As of late Wednesday night, more than 500,000 customers were without power in Pennsylvania.
Like Arkansas, a state of emergency has been declared and the governor said it may take days before power is fully restored.
