Dozens of Southern California flights to the East Coast have been canceled as blizzard conditions engulf a wide swath from the Carolinas to Massachusetts. 

Delta canceled all flights to New York's John F. Kennedy Airport; American Airlines scrapped 15 flights to Boston, New York, Newark and Washington, D.C.; United canceled six flights to the same cities; and Jet Blue reported many East Coast flights delayed or canceled, according to LAX spokesman Harold Johnson in an interview shortly after noon on Sunday.

More flights were expected to be canceled as the day progressed, and travelers were advised to check their flight status before heading to the airport.
