(BCN and KQED) The anticipation of stormy weather on the East Coast has resulted in 69 flight cancellations at San Francisco International Airport this morning — 48 departures and 21 arrivals — the duty manager said.

Flights heading to Newark Liberty International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, Logan International Airport and some Philadelphia flights have been impacted the most so far.

Many flights have been cancelled in advance of the storm so that air transportation can recover more quickly following the storm.

The airport is recommending travelers call the airline to check on the status of their flight before leaving for the airport.

Oakland International reports no delays or cancellations at the moment.
