Storm could worsen and disrupt travel plans

CHICAGO (AP) - A wall of storms packing ice, sleet and rain could upend holiday travel plans for millions of people taking to the roads, skies and rails for Thanksgiving.

So far, the deadly storms barreling into the mid-Atlantic and Northeast have not resulted in many flight delays or cancellations, but forecasters are expecting the weather to worsen as today wears on.

AAA projects nearly 40 million Americans will be aboard planes, trains and automobiles traveling for the holiday.

Mother nature is serving up sides of rain, ice and snow to go along with your turkey.

The winter-like storm is causing delayed or canceled airline departures and cramped airplane cabins.

The roadways are not much better, more cars coupled with icy conditions have already resulted in over 100 wrecks and left 12 people dead.
