TULSA, Okla. — The winter storm turned Tulsa into a winter wonderland, but it’s causing flight cancellations at Tulsa International Airport.

Sunday passengers made their way through the Transportation Security Administration and their gates, but others had their flights canceled.

“Oh yeah, they’re all crowded, 'cause everybody is having cancellations. So, they all rollover to the next plane. Yeah, it’s crazy,” Amanda Cly said.

Cly is one of the hundreds of passengers stranded by the big storm. She flew into Tulsa from DFW. Cly was coming from a Valentine’s Day getaway at the beach in Walton, Florida. She said she knew about the storm but did not expect to find herself stranded in the middle of it.

“I thought it was going to be bad, but I didn’t think it was going to be canceling flights bad,” she said.

Now she’s renting a car to get herself to Oklahoma City.

“There’s nothing flying in there. So, we’re going to have to drive,” Cly said.

Passengers like Cindy Cruz are no strangers to this weather. She was flying back home to Chicago and her flight was not disrupted by the weather conditions.

“So far, it’s still on. So, I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” Cruz said.

James Meeker travels for work. His flight to Ohio was also canceled, and he’s staying at a hotel tonight, hoping tomorrow he’ll have better luck.

“I got one for tomorrow. Hopefully, it won’t get canceled,” Meeker said.

If you had traveling plans for today or tomorrow, check your airline for the status of the flight. If you need to get yourself to the airport, be sure to give yourself plenty of time to drive safely because roads are covered in snow.
