The storm hitting parts of the country is leaving thousands of travelers stranded at airports -- hundreds of them at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
At least 16 departures and 12 arrival flights have been cancelled at RDU. Most of those are into and out of cities covered in snow. Many flights were delayed by as much as two hours.
RDU says it's always best to check with your airline first before you head to the airport for a flight.
