5:27 AM: The anticipation of stormy weather on the East Coast has resulted in 55 flight cancellations at San Francisco International Airport this morning, a duty manager said.
As of 4:30 a.m., 38 departures and 17 arrivals have been canceled at SFO, airport duty manager John Ginty said.
Flights heading to Newark Liberty International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport and Logan International Airport have been impacted the most so far.
