Officials: Airport is not a public shelter, parking garages are filled to capacity
OKLAHOMA CITY – As the possibility of severe storms is in the forecast, many families are thinking about what to do in case of a tornado in the metro.
Officials at Will Rogers World Airport are warning residents that the airport is not a public storm shelter. Airport officials say Will Rogers only has enough room to shelter-in-place passengers and airport workers.
Also, all covered parking garages are filled to capacity and closed. There is no additional space for people to bring their vehicles to the airport to avoid hail damage.
Officials say the roads in front of the terminal building are only for loading and unloading passengers, and cannot be used to park vehicles during severe weather.
