Memphis Airport Flooded

The General DeWitt Spain airport, which is situated near the Mississippi River, has been closed due to flooding. There were valiant attempts made to keep the water out with sandbags, but in the end, Old Man River won out. The airport is completely flooded. The DeWitt Spain is a general aviation facility and a busy flight school. Fortunately, most of the aircraft had been moved out before the flood waters arrived. There is no word as to when it might reopen. Memphis International Airport is operating and fully functional. It is located far from the river and any flood zones, so rest assured that your Fed Ex deliveries will be right on time.
