Storms Cause Flight Delays at Birmingham Airport

On Monday afternoon a series of thunderstorms moved through the Birmingham region, causing a number of flight delays at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, according to the airline’s website.  At least 14 flights were delayed, including a flight coming in from Chicago that had to be diverted to Nashville.  The storms brought with them heavy rain and high winds that not only caused problems at the airport, but caused a number of problems with power outages.


Alabama Power Co. reported that as of 4:00 pm a minimum of 189,000 customers were without power.  The high winds caused damage to trees and in the downtown area it blew out a revolving window in the AT&T building.  The areas that were the hardest hit were Birmingham, Oneonta, Jasper, and Gadsden.
