KENT COUNTY, Mich. -- Several flights at Gerald R. Ford International Airport were either cancelled or delayed Tuesday because of severe weather.

Several dozen flights coming in and going out of the Kalamazoo-Battle Creek airport were also cancelled today.

According to the Ford airport's website, 10 departure flights and 11 arrival flights were cancelled as of 2:04 p.m.

Seven departure flights were delayed, some by more than three hours.  At one point a 7:30 a.m. flight to Cincinnati was scheduled to depart at 3:15 p.m.  It has since been cancelled.

Spokesperson Phil Johnson said that although the winter-like weather came earlier than expected, the airport is following standard protocol for clearing runways.

He said the best way for passengers to keep up with their flight times  in Grand Rapids is checking directly with their airline or looking at the airport's website.
