More than 2,300 flights canceled at NYC-area airports

Posted: Updated:

More than 2,300 flights have been canceled at New York City's three major airports.

Flight-tracking website FlightAware shows massive cancellations at John. F Kennedy, LaGuardia, and Newark Liberty airports.

FlightAware indicated that most domestic carriers suspended operations by 5 p.m. Friday. Flights will resume sometime Saturday afternoon. International carriers may continue to operate.

Airlines issued so-called "weather waivers," allowing passengers flying in the storm-affected areas to change their flight date without paying a change fee.

Airlines try to get ahead of big storms by canceling flights in advance.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.

    When Denis Belliveau is teaching kids about Marco Polo, he is in his element. He makes the explorer's journey come alive by taking students on a No. 7 train ride through Queens, New York's most diverse borough. He brings history alive for his students. Along the way the students stop in neighborhoods that mirror Polo's trip. I caught up with the class in Flushing, Queens, which easily resembles China.
