KAMLOOPS — Four flights departing from Fulton Field have been canceled today and one was delayed. 

One arrival was canceled and another was delayed.

Airport Manager Fred Legace says it is due to gusting wind in Vancouver, Calgary and Kamloops.

“Vancouver reached 90 kilometre winds. We had high winds in Kamloops too,” says Legace.

According to Environment Canada, Calgary reached 91km/h at 1pm this afternoon.

“Between the two of them the operation centres looked at the weather and decided to cancel the flights.”

Legace says the cancellations were out of an abundance of caution. 

He says gusting wind is not typical this time of year, adding that it usually comes in May.
