They don't normally close an airport for bad weather unless it is really bad. My guess someone got through security who shouldn't have, that is usually the case. Let us know what else you hear. It is a holiday weekend and that usually means heightened security.

Hi, I am watching our local news channel...they are affiliated with CNN and Post News...they said some sort of security was breached... ....No flights are departing......but they are allowing flights in......
LOS ANGELES -- Hurricane Frances prompted airlines to ground flights from Los Angeles International Airport to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando on Friday, and flights to Atlanta were delayed, an LAX official said.
Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood and Orlando international airports were closed because of the impending storm, and service from LAX to those airports was suspended, according to the Los Angeles World Airports Web site.
Supposedly security has been breached. CNN reported that a person was carrying an old flashlight with corroded batteries that "exploded" and several people were hurt.
CNN also reports a possible "suspicious" person.... nothing really confirmed.
Lots of police and emergency personnel and vehicles outside the international terminal.
CNN now covering this live. Some planes are landing supposedly. CNN says no flights departing. Authorities reportedly saying a "security breach" and it seems very unclear as to what is happening. MSNBC now also covering this live.

There, apparently, were two separate incidents....one of which was the 'exploding flashlight'. Airport is totally closed....no incoming flights allowed either. Fox News had an interviewer state there was a report of a 'suspicious person'.
