There were reports that the flights were diverted due to earthworms on the runway, which Hamilton said isn’t true.
Sweepers were out this morning making sure there was no standing water on the runway.
“That’s just to make sure that there’s no water on the runway that’s going to potentially cause a safety issue of skidding or hydroplaning on the runway,” Hamilton said.
She said the sweepers could be used to clean up earthworms after the storm.
“We usually do it as a preventative measure just because we don’t want them to attract birds.”
