Nearly 800 New York Flights Cancelled

New York and New Jersey ordered the evacuation of nursing homes and low-lying coastal areas already devastated by deadly storm Sandy as a smaller but still powerful Nor'easter approached from the Atlantic Ocean.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg closed parks and beaches and temporarily halted outdoor construction ahead of the storm, which was pelting the Washington area with ice pellets on Wednesday and whipping up seas as high as 7.5 feet (2.3 meters) about 20 miles (30 km) off New York's JFK airport, AccuWeather reported.
Airlines cancelled 770 flights into and out of the New York area, FlightAware said.
