New York Flights Delayed as Storms Bring Tornado Warning

By Mary Jane Credeur and Leslie Picker - Jul 1, 2013

Flights at New York City-area airports, the busiest U.S. travel market, face delays of as long as two hours as severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes sweep through the region.

Planes leaving New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport, a United Airlines (UAL) hub, are being held for about two hours, and the waits may increase, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said on its travel website. New York’s LaGuardia airport, where Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) and American Airlines dominate flights, had similar delays.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for northeast New Jersey and said severe thunderstorms with possible flash floods were likely in the New York City area through this afternoon local time.
