Flights between McAllen and Dallas are canceling, All flights have been canceled and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport announced at about 6:30 am that it has completely closed, except for air travelers already in the airport.

Dallas Love Field is still open, however.

There’s no word yet on when DFW will be re-opened but they hope to have the airport re-opened by 7-8 am, according to Airport representative David Magana.
