United Airlines, Air Canada, WestJet, US Airlines and Delta scrapped flights between Ottawa and destinations such as New York, Newark, Washington and Philadelphia, according to the Ottawa International Airport Authority’s website. Porter Airlines also cancelled flights to Toronto’s Island Airport.
That’s on top of the more than 70 flights cancelled Monday.
Southern Ontario is expected to bear the brunt of the storm today, with powerful winds being more of a concern for forecasters than the rain. Tens of thousands of customers lost their electricity in both Ontario and Quebec.
A wind warning has been lifted for Ottawa, where Environment Canada predicted gusts of up to 50 km/h on Tuesday.
