GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Tropical Storm Harvey continues to cause travelers from around the country to be delayed.

Sunday morning at Gufport-Biloxi International Airport, at least five flights were delayed due to the storm. Three flights leaving from Gulfport to Houston were canceled. Those include a 7 a.m. flight, as well as one at 12:10 p.m. and another at 3:35 p.m.

Two flights that were scheduled to arrive in Gulfport from Houston have also been canceled -- one at 11:39 a.m. and another at 3:40 p.m.

All of the canceled flights are on United Airlines, which is the only airline at the Gulfport airport to fly between Houston and Gulfport. United is waiving flight changes fees from Aug. 24-29 as a result of the delays.

They are also asking that passengers continue continue monitoring their travel plans in case of any future changes.

Airport officials say the cancellations have impacted a few hundred passengers at this time.
