A massive winter storm has cut off power for thousands of Americans in the central and western U.S., forcing nearly 1000 flights to the ground in cancelations or delays.

The winter storm stretches from Michigan to California, bringing dense snowfall to much of the Midwest and Great Lakes areas. Minneapolis faces a staggering 18-24″ in projected snowfall, and areas of Utah, Colorado and Wyoming will match that amount.

More than 900 flights across the U.S. were canceled as of early Wednesday morning, according to The Wall Street Journal. The Denver International Airport and Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport accounted for most of the cancelations.

Meanwhile, more than 100,000 power outages have been reported in California alone, which is now feeling only the beginnings of the storm.
