PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — High winds downed trees and caused power outages throughout Oregon on Friday, and other storms impacted various part of the United States.
At PDX, only a few flights were canceled as of 10 a.m. Friday. More than 100,000 people in the area were without power at one point.
But airports in other parts of the country were definitely affected.
The Associated Press reports Delta Air Lines canceled about 3,000 flights this week as it continues to struggle in the aftermath of a storm that hit its hub airport in Atlanta.
The thunder storm hit Wednesday, but canceled flights and long lines in Atlanta persisted into Friday. Tracking service FlightAware.com says Delta had canceled more than 400 flights by midday.
The airline says it is still getting planes and crews back in position for flights.
On Twitter, Delta is telling people who expect to fly Friday to check their flight’s status before going to the airport. The airline is apologizing and says it’s trying to rebook customers.
Travelers whose flights are canceled can get a refund. Delta is also offering to waive change fees for those who rebook their plans.
