The closure of big airports in the Northeast is producing a ripple-effect that may well spread across the nation.
High winds from Hurricane Sandy are forcing the closure of airports in New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D. C.
Albany Airport Director Yvette Aehle tells WALB that flyers can still leave and arrive from Albany, but they'd be wise to call their carriers to see if they can land or take off from other cities.
Otherwise, they may be stuck in an airport indefinitely.
Aehle said that delays at Atlanta's airport are a virtual certainty, since so many flights to and from the New York, D. C. area are being affected.
WALB's Jim Wallace will have more on this story later today...
