Northeastern storms delay South Georgia travelers

February 17, 2003

Valdosta - Severe weather in the northeast is affecting people in South Georgia.

Snow has forced many airports along the northeastern coast to shut down. Many people traveling up north showed up at the Valdosta Regional Airport Monday to discover that their flights were cancelled.

"I was headed to Boston via Atlanta and I was supposed to leave on the 1:40 flight but it has been cancelled because Logan Airport in Boston is closed," said Valerie Parkison. "I've heard that we've got 12 to 24 inches of snow up there."

Valerie Parkison was in Valdosta visiting a friend at Moody Air Force Base. She hopes her flight will be rescheduled for Tuesday.
