#GoodNews: Southwest Airlines Flew Travelers Stranded In Houston For Free

As the flooding from Hurricane Harvey continued, hundreds of travelers were stranded at Houston Hobby Airport with no options. The storm grounded all flights, but about 500 lucky passengers made it out Sunday night on five emergency rescue flights Southwest Airlines made to Dallas.

The airline boarded stranded folks on five of their stranded Boeing 737s and took off before sunset, since the airport had no operational runway lights for takeoff. There are still 10 Southwest planes on the ground at Houston Hobby, but the airport is expected to remain closed to all non-emergency flights until at least August 30, according to the FAA.
