Hobby, Bush Airport closed until further notice

Cullman United Way Harvey Relief Fund Effort Underway

The FAA closed the airport to commercial traffic on Sunday, and all roads to and from the airport are also closed.

Southwest Airlines evacuated almost 500 passengers stranded at Houston's Hobby Airport on Sunday, according to multiple media outlets.

An 11:39 a.m. arrival, as well as a 9 p.m. arrival, on United Airlines to the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport have been canceled.

All of the planes landed safely at Love Field airport in Dallas.

The airline conducted an emergency rescue operation after all roads leading to the airport were closed, the news outlet reported, citing airline and US government sources.

There were no working lights at the airport, so Southwest's pilots had to move fast to fly out before the sun set.

Before the rescue, Southwest released a statement about Houston's Hobby on its Twitter page. Thirty-one of those flights are from O'Hare International Airport.

'Please do not attempt to reach HOU until local authorities provide further direction.

Texas officials have been expressing concern that not as many people are evacuating compared with previous storms as Hurricane Harvey bears down on the state.

With the city being a major hub for two national carriers, United and Southwest, the hurricane has rippled across both airlines' route maps.

ABC also reports that as of Sunday afternoon there were just 25 people remaining inside of Houston Hobby, including 17 Houston area residents.

Some airports are expected to reopen later Monday, but travelers should expect at least a couple more of delays through Houston.

A flash flood emergency is in effect for Harris County and life-threatening flooding is possible.
