Vicious storms cause airport delays

A system that was pushing ferocious storm cells in a track from Alabama to the mid-Atlantic states brought tornado warnings, watches and delays at Atlanta's airport, a vital national hub.

A tornado warning was in effect Wednesday afternoon near Sylacauga and Alexander City in Alabama, according to the National Weather Service. A watch was in effect at midday Wednesday for north Georgia, including metro Atlanta. Some flights heading into Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport were being delayed by as much as 90 minutes.

Delays also were reported at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport; LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York; Philadelphia International Airport; and Newark International Airport.

    And nothing of value was lost. Shame to hear a dirt hut collapsed in an earthquake killing the family of 20 who lived under it and taking out half the city, no idea how we'll ever recover from losing such a valuable dirt-tribe of people.

    Human life has more value than possesions. people who live with so little are much more humble..God cares about the heart and not the outward appearance or possesions of a man..
