Travel services across the northeast, including CT, are being impacted by the storm.

Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks reported a number of flight cancellations 

Alisa Sisic, the airport's manager of marketing and public information officer, said the airport has been closely monitoring Friday's nor'easter.

She said in addition to the cancellations, some airlines have adjusted their schedules.

Around 7:30 a.m., approximately 40% of Friday's arriving and departing flights were canceled. There are also a small number of delays. 

"Passengers who are scheduled to travel [Friday] are advised to check with their airline on their individual flight itineraries and any potential rebooking options before heading to the airport," Sisic said.

Real-time flight status updates are available on Bradley's website here. Twitter users can also follow the handle @BDLFlightInfo.

Officials from Amtrak Northeast said service is suspended between New York and Washington D.C. this evening because of "severe storm-related issues" like flooding and downed trees.

Amtrak said despite its best effort to restore service, they determined at this time it is not safe to do so.

"Hazardous conditions for our customers & crews have led us to cancel all Amtrak service on the Northeast Corridor until tomorrow. We sincerely apologize," officials said.

Around noon, ShorelineEast said train service was suspended indefinitely because of the storm. At about 3:30 p.m., officials said Shoreline East trains will be replaced with bus service.
