Memphis airport closes terminal due to water pressure issues


MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — All incoming and outgoing passenger flights at Memphis International Airport were canceled due to terminal closures caused by system-wide water pressure issues, the facility said.

A press release from the airport said it has experienced ongoing pressure issues throughout the week, but on Thursday night levels dropped to the point where passenger operations weren’t viable.

Memphis Light, Gas and Water issued an order for residents to boil water before they use it after frigid temperatures led to water main ruptures and problems at pumping stations.
