Houston airports will reopen Wednesday as the city recovers from the catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.

The city’s two major airports, George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport, announced they would be resuming service Wednesday at 4 p.m. 


Both airports said they would have limited flights on Wednesday and will attempt to return to full service by the weekend. 


The Houston Airport Service said there were currently 50 travelers stranded at airports, according to KENS 5 Eyewitness News. 

The airports were closed over the weekend as Harvey, which made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane and is now a tropical storm, brought record rainfall to Texas and Louisiana.

In Houston, several major roads are still closed due to severe flooding. The storm dumped roughly 51 inches of rain on the city since the storm started, according to The New York Times.

At least 30 people have died during the storm.
