A female voice came over the speaks, ‘we regret to inform you that due to extreme weather conditions all flights have grounded.’
A loud groan rose from the thousands of people packed into the airport. Eyes went to the windows where outside hurricane force winds were lashing heavy rain against everything. Thunder rumbled and forked lightening light up the black sky.
‘I’d rather be here then up there,’ an old woman uttered.
A babies started crying, children began complaining, teenagers rolled their eyes and buried themselves back in their phones and the adults prepared for a nightmare of waiting.
