TAMPA — Many flights leaving Tampa International Airport to Northeast destinations have been cancelled.

A storm hit the East Coast this morning, dumping more than a foot of snow in some areas and causing some airlines to cancel flights.

Most of the affected flights out of Tampa were scheduled to go to Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and the New York City area.

Officials are suggesting that all travelers check on the status of their flights before heading to the airport. Flights departing from Tampa International Airport can be checked at

Some incoming flights have been cancelled, too, including seven flights that were scheduled to come in from the New York City area.
