Cold Weather Cancels Flights

The deep freeze stranded passengers at the nation's airports and grounded flights at home.

No flights have gone through the Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport since Sunday.

The airport normally flies four flights a day to Cleveland.

They served 640 passengers last month and more than 8,000 for 2013.

Fortunately for anyone awaiting travel this week they're comfortable at home, unlike thousands of other passengers connecting across the midwest and northeast.

"We've not seen any passengers up here," says airport manager Jeff McDougle. "They're being notified by the airline or they themselves have been calling the airline to find out the status of their flights."

McDougle says this marks the first time in his four years with the airport the cold is blamed for delays.

Weather pending, flights are set to resume Wednesday night at 5:30.
