More than 120 flights at SFO canceled due to storms

There are 129 canceled flights at San Francisco International Airport today due to storms across the United States.

Airport spokesman Doug Yakel said 50 of the cancellations were to or from the Northeast area of the U.S., and 79 are related to poor weather on the West Coast.

About 10 percent of the airport’s flights are canceled.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said some flights may be delayed an average of four hours and eight minutes, but Yakel said the number does not reflect real-time delays.

Airlines usually cancel flights to adjust their schedule and delays are currently averaging 25 minutes, Yakel said.

The FAA is not reporting any delays at Oakland or San Jose airports at this time.
