As a result, travelers returning home are facing dangerous conditions on the road and in the air.

On Friday, the fierce storm will shift eastward and affect the entire East Coast from Florida to New England bringing torrential downpours and dangerous travel conditions with it.

Thirteen states have issued winter weather advisories or storm warnings and the governor of Kansas declared a state of emergency in the western part of the state.

On Wednesday, a flight en route to Dallas/Fort Worth from Mexico was forced to divert to Austin after experiencing heavy turbulence. One passenger and one flight attendant were taken to a hospital in Austin with non-life threatening injuries.

More severe storms expected along the central gulf coast on Thursdays.

Expect significant travel delays if flying in and out of the Twin Cities, St. Louis, and Nashville as well as when driving on multiple interstate highways including I55 between New Orleans and Chicago and I20 between Shreveport and Atlanta. On Friday, expect flight delays and cancellations in New York City, Boston, and Atlanta and poor driving conditions all along the I-95 corridor.
