Severe weather cancels flights at Tampa International Airport

TAMPA — Numerous flights into and out of Tampa International Airport were canceled or delayed Wednesday morning because of severe weather moving through the southeastern parts of the country.

By around 9 a.m., 45 flights had been cancelled and nine delayed. Most of those were to and from Atlanta, which was dealing with icy conditions, said airport spokeswoman Emily Nipps. Most of those flights were also operated by Atlanta-based Delta Airlines.

"Usually airlines now will cancel the flights instead of having people sitting in the airport," Nipps said.

Several connections were been rerouted to help passengers reach their destinations. Nipps said travelers should call their airlines or check online to make sure their flights were on time.

    And it's about time.

    Former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He had been eligible since 2009, a ridiculously long wait for someone who scored 640 goals, including a record 274 on the power play.
