LAX Flights Delayed, Canceled In Wake Of Texas Tornado Storm

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A series of tornadoes and high winds in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas have left several flights departing from Los Angeles International Airport either canceled or delayed by as much as three hours.

Five departures to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and three arrivals from Dallas have been canceled at LAX as of mid-afternoon on Tuesday, according to Los Angeles World Airports.

Four other departures and two other arrivals have been delayed.

The Federal Aviation Administration enacted a traffic management program at DFW after a rare tornado storm ripped roofs off of homes and flattened tractor trailers in the Dallas area.

Passengers or people planning to meet passengers at LAX are being advised to check with airlines about flight status before heading to the airport.
