ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The domino effect of flight delays and cancellations as a result of a massive snowstorm slamming the Northeast is already being felt by travellers at Lambert-St. Louis airport.

“We’re already showing about 17 departures cancelled,” Lambert spokesman Jeff Lea told KMOX News at mid-morning. “A lot of those are to Newark (New Jersey) and LaGuardia (New York City).”

Slightly fewer of the scheduled arriving flights were already cancelled, according to Lea.

He says it’s a very good idea to stay in touch if you’re scheduled to either catch a plane heading east or pick up passengers from a flight originating in the storm zone.

“The best bet is to check and contact your airline,” he explained. “Either directly through their 1-800 numbers or online.”

Flight information will also be constantly updated at Lambert’s own website,

Lea added that many more flights are likely to be delayed or cancelled as the storm continues to pound major destinations in the northeast.
