Air, train and road travel nor­mal as hol­i­day week­end winds down

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

NEW YORK — Millions of Amer­i­cans made their way back home Sun­day af­ter a long Thanks­giv­ing week­end, fac­ing min­i­mal stress and strain as they trav­eled by air, rail or road.

Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion data showed most U.S. air­ports with de­lays of 15 min­utes or less through Sun­day after­noon.

Lines at air­line check-in coun­ters and se­cu­rity check­points were short and flow­ing quickly at New York’s Kennedy Air- port.

Am­trak in New York City was run­ning nor­mally, and no ma­jor traf­fic prob­lems were re­ported in the North­east cor­ri­dor.

But it wasn’t smooth­go­ing ev­ery­where. Storms i n Wash­ing­ton state dropped more than 2 feet of snow in 24 hours. Be­sides driv­ing prob­lems, of­fi­cials said there was a risk of land­slides. AAA es­ti­mated 48.7 mil­lion Amer­i­cans would travel for Thanks­giv­ing week.
