A big winter storm hitting the east coast could have some effect on Central Oregon.
The FAA announced they canceled about 3,000 flights in and out of the east coast Friday and through the weekend.
Redmond Airport Security Coordinator Nicole Jurgensen says local flights should not be affected; but if your travel plans are to go to the east, you may want to touch base with your carrier. "We do have a website: www.flyrdm.com that also has our local carriers contact information on there as well as direct links and a flight tracker on that site as well."
Most of the air carriers servicing the storm area have announced they will allow a one-time date or time change for a flight in or out of the area Friday and this weekend.
