Pretty rough weather earlier in MS; 1 tornado touched down with death and injuries. Supposed to be bad in AL & GA overnight. Be safe.

My bet is ATL will be closed for an extended period tonight with mass diversions affecting a lot of flights tomorrow ...

Sitting on the tarmac at MCO waiting for ATL to clear us. So far we've been given a 45 minute delay followed by an additional 30 minute delay.

GROUND STOPS
ARPT UPDATE POE SCOPE REASON
ATL 0230 MED ZME ZTL ZID ZMA ZHU ZJX ZDC WEATHER / THUNDERSTORMS


According to the FAA the next update time before they let anyone start to come in is at 2230 local. By the looks of that storm system, it looks like you will be returning to the gate in MCO.

I <3 ATL.

And they just told us its going to be another hour. At least I cleared the UG. The crew is busting their tails to keep everyone pacified with drinks and snacks.
