10 December 2018

Parts of the South are still reeling from a winter storm which blew through the region over the weekend, dumping up to one foot of snow and causing travel chaos which led to hundreds of flights being cancelled on Monday.

Between Sunday and Monday, more than 1,000 flights were cancelled as a result of Winter Storm Diego, including 382 in and out of Charlotte Douglas Airport that were called off before 10am on Monday.

Fifty flights had been canceled in and out of Durham and 40 had been canceled to and from Richmond in Virginia.

The storm eased up overnight and is now blanketing the region with cold rain. Parts however still remain impassable as a result of the sudden freeze on Saturday and Sunday which led to dangerous road conditions.

In Charlotte, many schools remain close and in North Carolina, the governor warned residents to stay inside.

‘Stay put if you can. Wrap a few presents, decorate the tree, watch some football,’ Governor Roy Cooper said on Sunday.
