The weather turned air travel into a nightmare today for many people in Ottawa, and all along eastern Canada and the US.

Most flights in and out of the Ottawa Airport were delayed, some canceled altogether.

Last night's freezing rain in Ottawa sparked a chain of delays here this morning.

The line at Ottawa’s Air Canada counter was so long today, the airline started serving free coffee to those who were waiting.

Bad weather in other cities is adding to the travel chaos here. If you are planning to travel, check with your airline about delays and cancellations.

CTV's Natalie Pierosara will have more on this story tonight at six.
