By WLOX Staff

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Tropical Storm Ida has forced the cancellation of several fights Tuesday at the Gulfport Biloxi International Airport.

Outbound flights scheduled before 8am Tuesday are canceled. The remainder of Monday's flights remain on schedule, but airport officials say they are subject to change.

Arriving flights Monday night will unload passengers and then fly out so aircraft are not vulnerable to high winds.  Airport officials say they have taken necessary precautions with equipment and property at the airport in advance of the storm.

You can get up-to-date flight information from the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport or from your airline.
