Six states have declared a state of emergency and state officials are taking every precaution. Virginia’s governor activated 500 men and women from the National Guard in preparation for the storm.

Many Portland travelers said they are frustrated with the flight cancellations, but it is nothing new.

“It’s been going on since Wednesday,” said Catherine Corcoran, who is traveling back East. “[It’s] a long time. [We’re] finally getting out.”
