AUSTIN (KXAN) — All flights at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport are canceled Monday and Tuesday due to snow and ice from Monday’s winter storm, officials say.

Airport officials made the announcement on Twitter at 9:29 a.m., and social media is one of the only ways they can get a message out since the airport’s website is down due to power outages.

Officials say people should contact the airline they booked with directly and figure out travel plans. There is no indication when flights will resume at AUS.

Later Monday night, AUS also canceled Tuesday arrival and departure flights.

“AUS personnel remain onsite and are working around the clock to remove snow and ice from the airport campus,” the update read.

While the snow has stopped, temperatures aren’t supposed to get above freezing until potentially Wednesday.
