While a record 43 million people plan on traveling for Thanksgiving in the United States, a dense fog over Chicago has caused the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

90 percent of those people are taking their journeys to the highways, causing severe gridlock and overwhelming volume to the already heavy holiday traffic.

In addition to the already 275 cancelled flights, there are over 3,000 flights expected to experience delays due to the dense fog.

With the visibility nearing zero, Chicago’s O’Haire and Midway airports are expected to face more cancelations and delays.

“We couldn’t see any road signs in front of us, or the house next door, so we left three hours early,” Hannah Ducey, who is travelling to Nashville, told CBS at O’Hare.

“I think the fog is going to have some effect on either people’s decisions on when they’re going to leave or certainly, if they’re out, in getting to where they want to go today,” she added.

Delays are expected nationwide due to severe weather conditions across the country.

If you are planning on traveling, make sure your devices are charged or you have your books ready, as you’ll have a lot of downtime.
