Weather Causes Travel Delays Across Texas

Icy roads and freezing temperatures in parts of Texas have killed at least nine people. Six people died in weather-related traffic accidents in the Metroplex, and three immigrants died of exposure to the cold in South Texas.

Also, Tex-Dot has closed parts of Interstates 20, 35 and 45 South because of jackknifed 18-wheelers. That left hundreds of drivers stranded on the side of the road. It could get worse before it gets better with even more freezing rain expected Wednesday night.

The weather in the Dallas area continued to affect air travel at Lubbock International Airport. Airport Director, Mark Earle says American cancelled its first two flights to Dallas Wednesday morning. It's third flight was delayed two hours. Southwest Airlines had a few minor delays. Delta ASA was flying on time, as was Continental. However, with more bad weather expected, it's a good idea to call before you go to the airport.

Here are the numbers for airlines at Lubbock International Airport.

  • Continental -1-800-335-2247
  • American is 1-800-433-7300 or 1-800-325-8224
  • Delta Express and Southwest at 1-800-435-9792
