The northeastern U.S.is bracing for a powerful, fast-moving storm that forecasters are warning could bring more than a foot of snow in some areas.

A combined 115 flights were cancelled in and out of San Francisco by 10 a.m., duty manager Bob Rotiski said.

Several flights out of Bradley International Airport have been canceled due to the snowstorm.

A look at the flight boards at Southwest Florida International Airport on Thursday morning shows numerous flights to and from the Northeast as cancelled or delayed. Kennedy International had 513 flight cancellations. "Their flight may be delayed, so that increases our business tremendously", said Royal Shine II Manager, Vince Berry. Almost all of the big airlines are waiving their change and cancellation fees for flights that were canceled on Thursday or Friday.

Greater Orlando Aviation Authority spokesman Rod Johnson said they expect the number of canceled flights to rise as the storm rages on.

American Airlines, JetBlue, Delta and United Airlines were among carriers that listed cancellations at Armstrong Airport.

More than 3,500 US flights were canceled Thursday, according FlightAware.com.

Impacted flights included arrivals and departures to and from Boston, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Syracuse and Washington, D.C.

Officials also are warning of high winds, coastal flooding and power outages.
