As of Friday morning, five nonstop flights at Will Rogers -- three to Charlotte, North Carolina; and two to Baltimore -- had been cancelled. While it is anticipated that most flights will operate normally, the airport says there may be a "trickle-down" effect that could cause additional cancellations and delays.
