Local Fliers Among Those Affected by Severe Storms

Travelers across the state felt the weather crunch Tuesday, including at Easterwood Airport.

Most flights were either delayed or cancelled as a strong storm system moved east across the state.

At DFW Airport, hundreds of flights in and out were cancelled. A funnel cloud above the field even forced the evacuation of two towers for a short time.

That meant American Eagle flights out of Texas A&M's airport were called off.

Continental fliers didn't have much more success, as afternoon and evening flights were cancelled, leaving many travelers stranded.

"Seeing this weather, I'm nervous. I really don't fly that much," said Walter Griffin. "I prayed before I got here so I get a safe flight from Houston to Tallahassee.

"I'm not really rushing to get back into Tallahassee, but my girlfriend just dropped me off," he continued. "I'm a patient person."

Ray Grossman didn't have that luxury.

"I've got an interview tomorrow," he said. "There's around 16 people involved in this, so it's kind of hard to reset that."

But his flight got the dreaded label of "Cancelled" as well.

"You just never know what's going to happen," he said. "A lot of flights are getting cancelled these days, and so it's really inconvenient, but it's still a lot quicker than driving."
