DALLAS (AP) - Christmas Eve winter storm travel delays hit Texas and prompted Gov. Rick Perry to activate emergency resources.

The National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings for parts of the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma, North Dakota and Minnesota.

Perry on Thursday afternoon activated some military personnel and high profile vehicles, as a precaution, to assist motorists. Perry cited blizzard conditions on stretches of Highway 84.

An advisory Thursday for Houston's Hobby Airport cited weather affecting traffic bound for the Dallas area, with delays topping two hours.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines offered travelers the chance to change their weather-affected flights with no penalty.

Dallas-based Southwest Airlines advised travelers to be aware of possible delays or cancellations, especially in storm-swept areas such as Minneapolis, Kansas City and Omaha, Neb.
