Over 76,000 flights had been delayed. The delays mostly affected Detroit, New Jersey, Chicago, Cleveland and Atlanta. The weather thus affected not less than 8 million passengers. The travelers thus incurred losses of $970,000 as they had to pay for unscheduled lunches and hotel rooms.

On January 7th, nearly 5,000 flights had to be delayed because of the cold. Arctic weather in the United States has killed at least 16 people, mostly in car accidents
