Wicked winter weather is causing travel troubles across much of the country and it's impacting people in the Triangle as well.

Winter weather warnings are posted from the Midwest to the Northeast. Airlines have been delaying or canceling flights because of the snowy weather.

Many travelers at RDU are affected by the weather. Some of them are passengers while others are friends and family members waiting for their loved ones to arrive.

In Seattle, 250,000 people were without power because of freezing rain. In Oregon, it's flood waters that are causing problems. Some areas saw up to 15 inches of rain.

In Chicago, more than 700 flights were canceled because of deep temperature drops and the winter wallop on the way.

So far, there have been two cancelations coming into RDU from Chicago and several flights are delayed.
