Flights across the nation are being impacted by the storm.

Flights across the nation have been impacted again because of the ice storm. The ice is affecting not only the Midwest, but the Great Plains as well.

Air travel expert Jay Ratliff says, out of 25,000 flights scheduled across the nation, more than 15,000 will be impacted in some way.

“We’re already seeing the surrounding airports, Cincinnati, Dayton,” he says, “more than 100 flights canceled this morning.”

Ratliff says the storm is snarling air traffic from one coast to the other and it will take two days or more to get it straightened out.
