January 29, 2015 - Cancelled flights from the
January 2015 nor'easter winter storm, Juno that
struck the upper East Coast this week cost the U.S. economy $230 million in
passengers’ lost activity, economists at the
U.S. Travel Association calculate.
Juno was an active and powerful winter storm
that went across the Central and Eastern United States. The storm disrupted transportation,
with snow emergencies declared in six states and
travel bans enacted in
New Jersey, New
York City, Massachusetts and
Rhode Island in which
thousands of flights were cancelled.
Up to 34.5 in of snow fell in
Massachusetts, marking the city's
largest storm total accumulation on record.
