Anybody have any other info on this?
There currently (6:00PM EST) is an aircraft circling the field presumably dumping fuel in preparation for landing with limited reverse thrust for landing...A bird was sucked into the engine.
P.S If I find anything else out I will alert this topic

I have info from a US airport status site. It's the bottom one:
Due to KATRINA, the NEW airport was closed as of Aug 29 at 11:00 UTC. The date/time when the airport is expected to reopen is not known.
Due to WIND, departure traffic destined to CYYZ airport is currently experiencing delays averaging 19 minutes.
General Departure Delays: Because a traffic management program is delaying some arriving flights, departing flight schedules may be affected. Check with your airline to determine if your flight is affected.
General Arrival Delays: Due to ARRIVAL DEMAND, arrival traffic is experiencing airborne delay between 16 minutes and 30 minutes and increasing.
Not anymore info, but it does state that there is an emeregecy arrival (if you read into it)
