Storms force nearly 100 flight to cancel in Richmond

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Sandy is making it tough for anyone trying to take a train or a plane in Richmond.

That's because there are so many cancellations.

At least 95 flights are canceled out of Richmond this morning.

That's more than half the airport's total flights, departing and arriving.

Airport leaders say the best place to check the status of your flight, is your airline's web site.

As for Amtrak, the North East Corridor Regional service in and out of the Richmond, Newport News, and Williamsburg stations is also canceled today.

Amtrak says it has not yet determined when train services will resume.

Meanwhile, Megabus has also announced temporary cancellation of service to and from more than 20 cities.

Sandy is affecting more than flights and trains.

It is doing a number on boats as well.

All morning long, I've been following the story of 17 people stuck on board a ship about 90 miles southeast of Hatteras, North Carolina.

We'll have more updates throughout the day.
