DENVER (KDVR) — Winds near Denver International Airport on Wednesday caused the Federal Aviation Administration to order a ground stop, with hundreds of flights diverting to other airports.

Later, at 6:11 p.m., the FAA ordered a second ground stop due to snow and ice at the airport. This stop is expected to last until around 7:30 p.m.

The initial ground stop ended around 4:18 p.m., and a ground delay was put in place until at least 7:29 p.m., according to the FAA National Airspace System Status. This caused departures to the airport to be delayed by just under two hours.

Pinpoint Weather Meteorologist Jessica Lebel said the wind was gusting up to 36 mph at DIA Wednesday afternoon. These winds were being caused by rain showers in the area.

Many of the flights were being diverted to Colorado Springs Airport, with 24 domestic flights and one international flights going there as of 3:35 p.m.

At least two flights were diverted to Salt Lake City.

According to FlightAware, three-quarters of all flights into or out of DIA were delayed or canceled Wednesday, the highest amount in the country.
