The area has also faced multiple marine warnings throughout the evening due to the wind and rain. 

A reporter for Jezebel put it succinctly, tweeting: ‘Just boarded a plane in New Orleans, storm passing through, and our phones all blared an emergency tornado alert at the same time. We took off anyway, it was the roughest, wildest ascent I’ve ever experienced, people screaming/praying/vomiting. And the pilot makes a 6 Flags joke.’ 

But with heavy rain hitting much of the southern half of the country and moving toward the mid-Atlantic region, cities from Chicago to Atlanta to Washington to Nashville could see travel impacted. 

According to AAA, about 55 million people were expected to go more than 50 miles from home over the holiday, about 98 percent of pre-pandemic levels. 

FlightAware, which tracks delays and cancelations, says about 400 flights have been slowed by the weather nationwide.  

The rain will hit the northeast Sunday afternoon and evening in New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Strong winds and lightning could slow travelers.
