Superstorm won't impact YLW
Oct 29, 2012 / 9:15 am
The eastern United States has all but shut down in anticipation of Monday's arrival of Hurricane Sandy.
Authorities say as many as 50 million people could be impacted for days as a result of the pending storm.
Many businesses and transportation links along the eastern seaboard have been shut down including airports.
Some 7,500 flights have already been cancelled.
Jenelle Hynes, marketing and media relations manager at Kelowna International Airport, says despite the large number of cancellations in the east, flights in and out of YLW will not be affected.
"It (cancellations) might affect somebody who was connecting onward to one of those destinations, but they would already be aware of that," says Hynes.
A handful of flights coming into YLW Monday show slight delays, however, Hynes says those delays are a result of situations in the originating airports and have nothing to do with the storm.
