Tropical Storm Sally: United, Delta, American, Southwest issue flight waivers amid threat of hurricane

Airlines including United, Delta and Southwest have posted flight waivers for travelers concerned about flying amid the threat of approaching Tropical Storm Sally.

Tropical Storm Sally triggered evacuations in Louisiana on Sunday as the northern Gulf Coast prepared for it to make landfall late Monday as a hurricane with 90 mph sustained winds.

Hurricane and tropical storm warnings were in effect for a swath of the northern Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle to Morgan City, Louisiana, as Sally gathered strength. The storm appears likely to make landfall somewhere near the Louisiana-Mississippi border, potentially in New Orleans, according to forecast models.
