The number of flights canceled in preparation of the latest storm to hit the East Coast has jumped to more than 1,800.

Meteorologists say the nor'easter storm bearing down on the East Coast won't be as damaging as Supertorm Sandy, which hit the region last week.

But the latest storm will cut through the busiest airspace in the nation, primarily canceling flights in and out of Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, La Guardia and John F. Kennedy International in New York and Philadelphia International and Chicago's O'Hare International airports, according to the flight monitoring site

Sandy forced the cancellation of more than 20,00 flights last week, according to Flightstats.
