Slow and Steady

It appears from new comments on social media that the power is back on at Evansville Regional Airport. That is great news! However, employees are all playing catch-up and the storms are not over yet. If you are flying or picking someone up from the airport today, check the Flight Tracker site and your airline for updates.
