Today was a rough day for the DL folks in TYS. They had 4 Mad Dogs divert plus a 738. This was due to the fact of the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy plowing over Atlanta. Any other diversions today for DL?

According to this morning's Atlanta newspaper, Cindy dropped some 5.6 inches of rain in a very short time, and there were multiple tornadoes just south of the Airport (see the Journal Constitution articles on the damage at Atlanta Motor Speedway).

My son and I were victim's of Cindy's furry. Our 6:07 pm flight out of Memphis didn't leave until after 10:00pm. Our 10:25pm flight to Sao Paulo didn't leave until 5am!! We're home now but our arrival into GRU was delayed 7 hours. Oh yeah, if you expect to find something to eat at ATL after 10pm? Find a vending machine.

I didn't understand the questions "...but do they let you stay within security?" Flights are behind security and we didn't leave the airport. Chili's Too had their bar open. I guess I figured something would have been open since most flights were late arriving and leaving.

SAV saw some diversions as well. Before I left, they had 4 MD's, 3 CRJ's, 2 738's, and a 767 on the ground IN ADDITION TO the 1 MD, 1 738, and 3 CRJ's that overnight here. I got some photos of the 767....apparently it was coming from SFO.

WOW! I got lucky! I was in ATL on that morning and both of my flights arrived and left on time thanks for my early arrival and departure out of ATL, I got to miss the storm by several hours. I try to avoid at all cost being in ATL during the evening severe summer thunderstorms. Everytime im in ATL during the AM periods, never had any problems yet.

I was working in our SOC that night. I believe we had a total of 12 diversions due to weather. Off hand, I remember sending 2 737's to HSV, 2 717's to AGS, 2 717's to GSP, 2 717's to TYS, and 3 717's to CHA. All of the FBO's involved did a fantastic job getting our aircraft in and out in a timely manner.

I was on my way back from Germany on July 6 and got delayed because of this weather. I flew from NUE to ZRH and from ZRH to MIA on Swiss, and then flew from MIA to ATL on AA. The flight was supposed to depart at about 8:15 p.m., but was delayed until 9:00. We were then boarded, sat at the gate for 20 to 30 minutes, taxied to somewhere, and were then told that there was a ground hold in ATL and that we would not be taking off for at least 1 hour and 15 minutes. After that amount of time, we took off, landing just past midnight. I got home at 1:20 a.m., making for a 22.5 hour trip from Germany.
