Massive winter storm, bitter cold could disrupt holiday travel –


) — The peak of the holiday travel season is almost here, with more than 100 million Americans expected to travel 50 miles or more to try to reach their vacation destinations.

With a massive winter storm looming, threatening parts of the US with blizzard-like conditions and arctic temperatures, some travel plans are likely to go off the rails.

And for commuters from Los Angeles, there’s the added joy of construction traffic.

“I would say get here to get an early flight because I thought it would be better, but I don’t think it is. This is the first time I’ve flown this early and I’ve never seen it so crowded, Chloe Feldman, a commuter from Los Angeles, told NewsNation’s “Rush Hour” on Monday.

The Points Guy’s Clint Henderson joined NewsNation’s “Rush Hour” to discuss the overall impact he expects and where he thinks it will be felt the most.

“The timing is not good for the storm. It’s going to affect most of the country east of the Rocky Mountains. If you can, take an earlier flight home for the holidays,” Henderson said.
