The movie beauty and her castmates were due to speak to reporters at one more group event in the run-up to the film’s release next week (begs12Oct12), but Greene has been left stranded in the Big Apple due to the strong winds, heavy rain and snow that hit the area on Wednesday morning.
Taking to her Twitter.com blog to complain about the travel problems, Greene writes, “Stranded in NYC missing the last Twilight press junket… Much love to the cast & press there supporting the film – wish I could be there!!
“Can’t believe it up and started snowing in NYC and that the flights are cancelled AGAIN nyc I Love You but La (Los Angeles) I Miss You”.
Airline bosses across the East Coast began taking precautionary measures late Wednesday morning and cancelled 1,200 flights out of airports in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
However, Greene’s co-star Nikki Reed was a little luckier and managed to score a seat on one of the last flights heading west from New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport.
She tweets, “Everyone say a prayer for me. On the only flight taking off from JFK to LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) on delta because no other airline will fly with the storm. I’m scared.”
The storm forecast comes just over a week after Hurricane Sandy, which was subsequently downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, wreaked havoc across the same region, destroying thousands of homes and leaving millions without electricity.
