  • DFW Aircraft Hail Damage #MROAM
    Posted by Lee Ann Tegtmeier 12:38 PM on Apr 04, 2012

    I contacted DFW Airport this morning to get an update on operations there, and an airport representative says that airlines cancelled more than 200 departures this morning due to yesterday's tornadoes and hail damage here.

    More than 100 aircraft were damage by hailed, and she says "airline personnel are conducting individual aircraft assessments to determine the extent of the impact."

    About 1,400 people camped out at DFW last night, and the American Red Cross provided additional blankets to the costs, pillows, toiletry kits and blankets the airport had. Many stores and restaurants stayed open later to accommodate the stranded passengers.
