New York airports closed due to hurricane Irene

Because of Hurricane Irene, there will be no incoming or outgoing flights Sunday out of the five New York-area airports -- John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark Liberty, Teterboro and Stewart -- operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, agency spokesman Steve Coleman said Saturday afternoon.
This means there are "thousands of flights cancelled, with 150 to 200 people a flight," said Coleman, speculating that "probably tens of thousands of people" are affected.Airports in Philadelphia, Washington, New York and Boston all planned to suspend operations for at least some part of the weekend.
