Monday evening's storms strand passengers at Charlotte Douglas

Dozens of flights were canceled forcing passengers to stay the night at the airport.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Hundreds of passengers were stranded at Charlotte Douglas International Airport after Monday evening's storms canceled and delayed flights heading out of Charlotte. 

Dozens of flights were canceled forcing passengers to stay the night at the airport. One woman was traveling back to Memphis, Tennessee, from Florida with her two young sons. They were forced to sleep on the floor with nowhere to go after their flight was canceled. 

American Airlines announced earlier this week it was bringing back more flight crew members as travel picks up, but when severe weather hits, they're left with no choice but to delay or cancel flights. In the meantime, Charlotte airport officials are asking people to call their airline to check the status of their flight.
