Delta Cancels 275 More Flights Days after Storm Disruptions


Delta cancels 275 more flights days after storm disruptions

Delta Air Lines is still canceling flights three days after severe thunderstorms caused big disruptions at its hub airport in Atlanta.

Delta said in a statement on its website that it cancelled about 275 flights Saturday morning "with some additional cancellations possible." That's on top of roughly 3,000 cancellations earlier in the week.

The trouble started Wednesday as powerful thunderstorms moved across Georgia and other states in the Southeast, grounding many flights. About 60 percent of Delta's planes use the Atlanta airport on an average day, and the airline says it's still getting planes and crews into position to resume their normal flight schedule.

Dallas sirens are hacked * Officials say Dallas' emergency siren system was hacked, resulting in them sporadically sounding for about an hour and a half overnight.

City spokeswoman Sana Syed said Saturday that investigators believe the hack came from the Dallas area. Office of Emergency Management Director Rocky Vaz said his office eventually had to shut down the system.

Officials say all of the city's 156 outdoor sirens that are used to alert people to shelter indoors during severe weather were activated. Vaz says investigators have asked the Federal Communications Commission to help determine who was behind the hack.

Sana says the sirens started at 11:40 p.m. Friday and the system was completely shut off by 1:20 a.m. Saturday.

Robert Bentley will face impeachment hearings beginning Monday after the state Supreme Court gave lawmakers the greenlight to move ahead with an effort to oust the governor, who is fighting to stay in office amid fallout from an affair with a top aide.

The Alabama Supreme Court on Saturday reversed a short-lived victory for Bentley when a judge on Friday blocked impeachment proceedings. After the high court's ruling, the House Judiciary Committee quickly announced plans to proceed with hearings on Monday.

Bentley, 74, a dermatologist and former Baptist deacon, has been embroiled in a sex scandal since recordings surfaced in 2016 of him making suggestive remarks to a female aide before he and his wife of 50 years got divorced.

Bentley has vowed to stay in office despite growing calls for his resignation. He stood on the marble steps of the state Capitol on Friday and somberly acknowledged making personal mistakes but maintained he did nothing to merit his removal from office.

"I do not plan to resign. I have done nothing illegal. If the people want to know if I misused state resources, the answer is simply no. I have not," Bentley said. He criticized unnamed people he said were delighting in exposing the embarrassing details of his personal life.

Inmates kill others in South Carolina * Two convicts each serving a life sentence for killing a mother and her child have been charged with murder in the strangulation deaths of four inmates inside a South Carolina prison.

Denver Simmons and Jacob Philip lured each of the four inmates into a cell at Kirkland Correctional Institution in Columbia on Friday morning, then worked together to attack and choke them, according to arrest warrants released early Saturday. …
