Severe thunderstorms have developed across parts of Central Kentucky. Expect more of these to develop through the evening hours.
On Friday at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, the runway used by the doomed flight of Comair 5191 closed permanently.
Construction began on a new runway at the airport. The smaller 3,500 foot general aviation runway is being replaced by a 4,000 foot one.
Airport officials say the decision had nothing to do with the fact that the Comair disaster happened after a commercial jet took off from the smaller runway.
The airport's primary, 7,000 foot, runway will remain open during the construction project.
