BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Flights scheduled at the Baton Rouge Airport are grounded due to weather conditions across the nation.

"The issue is with the hubs - Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte – the weather conditions there are causing the problems," Jim Caldwell, a representative for the Baton Rouge Airport, explained.

"The terminal is full," one traveler told WAFB. "We were supposed to leave at 7:30 a.m. and there is still no departure time. No planes have taken off since we've been here."
