BLOOMINGTON, Ill.-- Flight cancellations at the Central Illinois Regional Airport are causing headaches for passengers.

Weather conditions continued to affect flights in and out of Bloomington on Monday.

More than 20 flights have been canceled at CIRA since the storm.

Officials say that although the skies are clear, it will take a few days for flight schedules to get back on track.

"It is a ripple affect and unfortunately with this severe weather it's probably going to last another 24 hours anyway. Plans are out of positions and trying to come in and out of the hubs have become an issue,” said Fran Strebing, Director of Marketing at CIRA.

"They rescheduled us for Peoria and we drove to Peoria [Sunday] and that one was rescheduled. I just checked here and they don't have room on the flight [Monday] that may or may not even go out,” said David Weber whose flight was cancelled to Dallas.

Accommodations will be made for passengers whose flights are cancelled.

Passengers are urged to call their airlines, not the airport, to find out of their flight is delayed or canceled.
