Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Our warming trend isn't immune to an impact from East Coast blizzards today, as a few airlines servicing Los Angeles International Airport have had to cancel or delay flights to destinations on the other side of the country where the snow has descended in full force.Airports affected include New York's Kennedy, New Jersey's Newark and Boston's Logan, according to CBS2.

Carriers who have canceled flights from LAX include American Airlines, Continental, and US Airways. Travelers from LAX, Burbank's Bob Hope, and other local airports heading to the New York, Boston, or Philadelphia areas should check with their airlines to find out about cancellations or delays.
