DFW Airport tells passengers to head to storm shelters

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport is telling passengers to move away from glass windows and to take cover in its storm shelters at its terminals.

The airport just sent out this tweet to passengers: "If you are inside one of our terminals, please seek shelter in one of the designated storm areas."

The Federal Aviation Administration has also issued a ground stop for flights coming and out of DFW Airport because of the storms on the ground.

I am sitting in the board room at the airport's administration building and airport staff has instructed board members to stay in the board room since it has no windows.

DFW Airport spokesman David Magana said that passengers should expect delays and incoming flights may be diverted to get out of the way of the storm.
