If you have plans on traveling through Atlanta out of Monroe Regional Airport then you might have problems the next few days. 

"Due to the weather, all the flights are cancelled throughout today," said Airport Director Ron Phillips. Flights to Atlanta are cancelled until further notice. It all depends on how fast Irma moves through Georgia.

Irma, now a Tropical Storm, is expected to bring a lot of rain and windy conditions to the Atlanta area today and overnight tonight. 

Seven airline flights to or from Houston via the Monroe Regional Airport have been cancelled.  Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport  and Houston Hobby Airport both are having flooding issues on their runways. The pooling of water on or over the runways in Houston is making it impossible for planes to takeoff or land. 

Both airports are closed until further notice.  This situation may continue for many days. 

Passengers are urged to check with airlines for the latest information.
