Flight delays caused by cold weather throughout country

PENSACOLA - The cold weather throughout the country has had a big impact on air travel. A number of flights going in and out of Pensacola International Airport have been delayed.
Long lines and long delays. That's what travelers have been facing in Pensacola and throughout the country.

"I'm exhausted," said Michael Tavarez, "My family's been worried. I haven't slept."

He and some of his fellow passengers say they're happy to be home after spending the night at the airport in Charlotte, North Carolina. It's a situation travelers have faced in several cities.

"There was a bunch of people laying on the ground," said Brooke Connors.

"You're never comfortable," Tavarez said, "I mean the best thing was, I would say like about one in the morning somebody actually came to wake me up and said that they were giving out cots."
Other passengers are leaving the relative warmth of the Gulf Coast and heading for some of the coldest parts of the country.

Jeff Kyle, who's heading to Newark Airport, said, "I feel a little nervous about it because I'm supposed to report to work tomorrow."

Eric Lauer-Hunt is going home to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the weather forecast tomorrow calls for a high of negative one degree. He says he's prepared for the possibility of more delays.
