Weather causes a few delays at Rapid City Regional Airport
RAPID CITY, S.D. ( KOTA TV) Rapid City Regional Airport was busy Monday afternoon despite foggy skies and blowing snow.
The airport was filled with hundreds of passengers returning home after the holidays.
"I guess it's not really too bad I just kind of go with the flow. Hopefully everything will work out, I have quite a few connecting flights so that would be nice if the delays would not happen," said traveler Savanna Sperle.
All morning departures flew out on time, and all flights were able to get to their destinations. Many afternoon flights to and from Denver, Minneapolis and Salt Lake City were delayed for a few hours due to the weather.
Many travelers heading south say the weather conditions made them a little nervous to fly, but they're ready to get to their destinations.
'It's kind of frustrating because I have two small children, but what can we do? It's the snow and we can't do anything about the weather but still it's fun," said traveler Lisa Mahoney.
The airport advises travelers to check their airline regarding the status of their flight.
