Several flights have been canceled Friday due to the weather.

United Airlines released a statement saying that the passengers from the Friday morning flight did not require medical attention.

The flight was en route to Washington Dulles International Airport when it was hit with bad weather from a powerful nor'easter, bombarding the East Coast with violent winds, torrential rain and snow.

Nearly everyone onboard a short East Coast flight threw up - pilots included - as the plane descended upon Dulles Airport near D.C. amid stormy, hyperturbulent conditions. "A few customers onboard the regional jet became ill as the aircraft was preparing to land".

It is unknown how many passengers were in the aircraft, but according to Air Wisconsin's website, the aircraft was a Bombardier CRJ200 with a passenger capacity of 50 and a crew of three. It also caused many areas in the northeastern United States to flood.
