Memphis International Airport canceled all flights for Friday, though it wasn’t because of an icy airfield.

“The airport has experienced low pressure periodically this week, but levels dropped Thursday night to the point that passenger operations were no longer feasible,” officials said in a press release. “As a result, the airport is closed to incoming and outgoing passenger flights on Friday, Feb 19. Cargo operations remain unaffected.”

They added, “The terminal will remain closed until water pressure has been restored to acceptable operational levels,” explaining that “the airport requires a significant water supply for restrooms, operations, food and beverage, and the airlines.”
