"Bomb Cyclone" storm impacts GJ flights

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Several flights to Denver from Grand Junction have been canceled due to the bomb cyclone storm on the Front Range.

While one direct flight left Grand Junction for Denver this morning, officials at the airport say at least four flights were canceled.

They've been canceled for passenger safety, but also because they don't want their planes getting stranded in severe weather at Denver International Airport.

Grand Junction Regional didn't see many outbound passengers to Denver, and a big reason for that is because airlines warned passengers in advance.

"A lot of the announcements started to come early yesterday, and so travelers were notified through the airlines, and so it's been fairly quiet today just because they got the word out early," said Director of External Affairs, Joseph Burtard.

Denver International Airport reported they canceled 1,332 flights due to the storm.
