HOUSTON, TX (FOX5) -

George Bush Intercontinental, Houston’s largest airport, was closed Sunday morning and will not reopen until Thursday at 12 p.m. (CDT), according to the FAA’s website.

The airport closure was a result of the devastation left after Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and surrounding areas in Texas, leaving a path of flooding, damage, and overwhelming loss in the region.  

Other airports in the Houston area were also temporarily closed including the William P. Hobby airport. See full list here
