DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — American Airlines has canceled more than 200 additional flights at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport as the region recovers from a powerful weekend storm.
A spokesman for Fort Worth-based American said Monday that the cancellations were the result of Sunday’s storm, which brought heavy rain, high winds and widespread power outages.
According to FlightAware.com, more than 220 flights were canceled by late morning at DFW, where American is the dominant airline. More than 500 DFW flights were canceled Sunday.
At nearby Dallas Love Field, a spokeswoman for Southwest Airlines said the storm’s aftermath led to some delays Monday, but that operations were back to normal by late morning.
Sunday’s violent weather in Dallas caused a crane to collapse onto an apartment building, leaving 29-year-old Kiersten Symone Smith dead and several people hurt.
