Tropical Storm Isaac Grounds Flights

Tropical Storm Isaac hits Florida and pelts it with rain before moving on to the Gulf Coast, reaching hurricane strength by the time it gets there.  As the storm moved across southeastern Florida on Sunday, hundreds of flights were canceled and service was not expected to resume until late on Monday.  The Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports experienced the most disruption, with 589 flights canceled between the two of them.


The total number of flights that has been canceled on Sunday due to the storm was a whopping 742.  The last American Airlines flight to leave Miami was noon on Sunday and they, along with their affiliate American Eagle, grounded a total of 486 flights.  The storm is expected to track across the Gulf, strengthening to a Category 1 or 2 hurricane by the time it makes landfall on Wednesday, the seven-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.  The storm will hit somewhere between New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle.
