Different airports in Florida experienced flight delays and cancellations on Friday due to bad weather and, in some cases, staff shortages.

According to the Federal Aviation Center, a Jacksonville facility needed additional staff for managing air traffic and did not resume normal operations until 10 p.m. on Friday.

The FAA released the following statement on Saturday regarding flight delays and cancelations.

“Due to a combination of severe weather, active military training in the airspace, and unexpected limited staff at the Jacksonville facility that handles high-altitude, en route traffic, the FAA took steps to safely manage air traffic the evening of Oct. 8. Normal operations returned at approximately 10 p.m.”

Other airports like Tampa International Airport had delays and cancelations due to bad weather.
