Winter Blast Freezes Flights In And Out Of OKC

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The winter blast has frozen many peoples' travel plans on Sunday.

At least half a dozen flights at Will Rogers World Airport are canceled and as the second storm rolls through central Oklahoma, that number could go up.

"This is nuts," said Mitch Bosch of North Dakota. "We have 25 below up there and 10 inches of snow and 30 mile an hour wind and you go ‘oh,' and here you get a little rain and a little snow and they shut things down."

This weather is nothing to Mitch and Kim Bosch. The family was in Oklahoma to watch the Division Two Wrestling Championship and is now just trying to get home to North Dakota.

"What are you going to do?" said Kim Bosch. "It is what it is."

Mohini Sharma's flight to Philadelphia also is frozen but due to another storm brewing in her neck of the woods, she's in no hurry to get home.

"We're here to find out if they're going to reserve our seat for Tuesday," said Sharma. "Because Monday in Philadelphia, it's 12 inches."

Andrea Eller of Oklahoma city needs to get to Charlotte, North Carolina for business and decided to just wait it out.

"Rather than sit at home and try to be on the phone, I figured I'd go ahead and come to the airport," Eller said. "I can drink coffee here as easy as I can drink coffee at home."

An executive decision the Bosch family from North Dakota may have to make.

"We don't know what we're going to do," said Mitch Bosch. "Maybe drive home."

The flight statues are constantly changing so be prepared to wait.

Check departing and arriving flights on the Will Rogers World Airport web site. 

You can also check with your flight carrier for flight schedule updates.
