As Hurricane Beryl nears, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport will remain open.

What you need to know

ABIA never closes, but runways can temporarily close during severe weather. Officials anticipate closures to be unlikely.

Airlines may cancel or delay flights even if local weather conditions are clear. Some flights may be diverted to ABIA due to the storm, and officials anticipate likely receiving diversions from Houston airports.

If lightning is spotted within 5 miles of the airport, the ramp crew must stay indoors, which may cause delays in deplaning or luggage arriving at baggage claim.

What to expect

Hurricane Beryl reached the Texas coast early July 8. The Austin area may receive some rainfall, according to the National Weather Service.

Travis, Hays and Williamson counties are three of 121 counties included in a state disaster declaration from Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued July 6.
