The storm has already affected air traffic out of Denver and Chicago.
That, of course, means that flights to Bismarck have been canceled.
Bismarck has been gearing up for a storm. The airport has already had three flights out canceled for Thursday. Four flights in were canceled Wednesday.
Airlines recommend that passengers keep an eye on their reservations in case of delays or cancellations. This evening, passengers were hoping for the best as they checked in for their flights.
"Yeah, I'm a little nervous, and hopefully there's not too much turbulence on the plane with the winds. But yeah, I'm excited," said Darlene Kleinknecht, Bismarck passenger.
Those we talked to were on a flight to Las Vegas and did make it out of Bismarck safely.
