NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The winter weather along the east coast is creating a ripple effect of flight delays and cancellations across the country and in Nashville.
At Nashville International Airport Tuesday night, travelers told News 2 they experienced flight cancellations or delays.
Reggie Smith and his family are headed to Chicago to catch a connecting flight to Norway.
They were lucky that their flight was delayed just one hour.
Smith said, “It's just crazy. All of a sudden last night this blew through here. We almost did not get home from work.”
Emily Smith had to scramble to get to Nashville from the nation's capital Tuesday after weather caused her first flight to be cancelled.
She said, “I was originally scheduled for a 6:15 p.m. flight out of BWI. [It was] cancelled. They closed that airport sometime around 12 Noon.”
Smith is in Nashville for business and is set to return to D.C. Saturday.
She's hopeful the winter weather will let up in time for her to travel home safely.
