Flights canceled at Newark Liberty Airport as result of winter storm Stella

True, winter storm Stella didn’t live up to the hype about the Nor’easter said to be barreling down on New Jersey, but it did manage to dump anywhere from six to 18 inches of snow across the Garden State (with heavier snowfall reported in some areas). And that was more than enough to idle 80 percent of the flights at Newark-Liberty Airport, according to the FlightAware website. Most of the cancellations were issued on Monday, ahead of the storm.

In other transportation factoids, New Jersey transit canceled all bus service and the Port Authority Bus Terminal was closed. NJ Transit light rail was running on a holiday schedule.
