Delays and cancellations are expected to continue throughout the day and possibly tomorrow.
New York’s three major airports (which include JFK and LaGuardia) and other airports throughout the region, continue to be closed today affecting flight schedules all over North America, in Europe and even in Asia. Travel agents and travellers are advised to check with their airlines before heading to the airport.
As Hurricane Sandy reached North American Shores last night it was downgraded slightly from Hurricane to a large tropical and potentially destructive storm with heavy rainfall and hurricane-force winds.

Hurricane Dean Aims for Mexico's Yucatan

Hurricane Dean Updated August 20, 2007 11:00 EST

Hurricane Dean spared the Cayman Islands the worst of its fury on Monday as it headed for a collision course with Mexico's resort-dotted Caribbean coast, sending tourists fleeing for the airports and locals searching for higher ground.

Dean was already a powerful Category 4 storm as it raked the Cayman Islands. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said it could grow into a monstrous Category 5 hurricane before slashing across the Yucatan Peninsula and emerging in the oil-rich Gulf of Campeche.

The Mexican resort city of Cancun began evacuations and arranged for extra flights to help tens of thousands of tourists leave before Dean's arrival. The hotel zone was quiet on Monday, nearly all guests gone... full story

Hurricane Season | Hurricanes | Tropical Storms

The hurricane season extends from June 1 to November 30. Tropical depressions and storms that may develop into hurricanes occur in the North Atlantic and Northeast Pacific oceans. The east and Gulf coasts of the United States (including Florida, Louisiana and Texas), Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean are the most threatened areas. Extreme weather events of this kind appear to be becoming more frequent and may pose a growing threat in these regions. If you choose to travel during the hurricane season (June 1 to November 30), you may be affected by these storms. You should:

Confirm travel arrangements prior to departure and ensure that your travel insurance allows for trip cancellation/interruption in the event of a hurricane

Ensure that detailed information – including the name of the tour operator, flight details, hotel name, location, room number and telephone numbers, cruise ship details and itineraries – is left with family or friends in Canada.

Ensure that page 4 of your passport is filled out properly, and leave copies of all travel documents with someone in Canada.

Consider registering with the responsible Canadian government office abroad through Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada's registration service. Registration can be done on-line or by calling the responsible Canadian government office abroad to request a registration form.

Monitor local news broadcasts and weather reports carefully, follow the advice, including departure orders, of local authorities and/or tour operators, and know how to contact the nearest Canadian government office abroad (embassy, high commission or consulate).

Carry details on how to contact Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada's  Operations Centre at 1-800-267-6788 or 613-996-8885, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and accepts emergency collect calls from Canadians requiring assistance abroad.

Up-to-date weather forecasts for the region are available from the National Hurricane Center, Environment Canada's Canadian Hurricane Centre also provides recommendations on hurricane preparedness.
