Fog causes travel problems

March 5, 2003

ALBANY - Dense fog causes problems for South Georgia travellers this morning.

Visibilities of less than a mile made it tough for drivers and pilots to see. At Albany's Southwest Georgia Regional Airport passengers were still waiting for their plane to depart from Atlanta at 10:30 Wednesday morning, the time they were already supposed to be on the plane. Most passengers were patient.

Vanessa Whitsett said, "When I got up this morning and I went outside I saw the fog and thought oh boy, I knew I was going to be delayed."

Luckily for Albany passengers most of their connecting flights were delayed as much as an hour as well, so they didn't miss them. The fog lifted with the midday sun and everything is running smoothly at the airport once again.
