It's just the smaller airports in MN, SD, and ND. IIRC a few of them have mainline service.

In general, large aircraft can deal quite well with severe weather, although the airport might be forced to increase the spacing between takeoffs and landings, so there can be ATC delays.

If you have a connecting flight from PNS to ATL, you should monitor it closely and possibly try to get switched to an earlier flight if you're scheduled for a tight connection. I could also be wise to arrive at the airport a bit earlier than usual in cases there are problems.

B concourse? Doesn't LHR depart from E or F? Or are you planning a SC crawl tonight?

You are correct..on the Term E/F London flghts. I was sort of hinting that any chaos/meltdown out of ATL would find many fliers (Medallion and not) camped out in the SC..
