NEWARK - Severe weather up and down the East Coast caused by Hurricane Arthur has been affecting both air and train travel in New Jersey.

Passengers at Newark Liberty International Airport are watching for red popping up on the status screens. Many flights to the South, the Midwest and even international flights have been canceled. 

There was much less frustration at nearby Newark Penn Station. NJ Transit added early getaway service in the afternoon for people who left work early and wanted to head to the Shore. They also added four extra round trips from New York City to North Jersey this weekend.  

NJ Transit suggests booking tickets in advance because of the high demand.
