Hammond Northshore Regional Airport
As of now, both runways remain open and the Airport continues to drain, with the exception of the normal areas that puddle. Standing water on the West Terminal ramp is significant, but as of now, there is no water in any hangars anywhere on the airfield as far as the Airport Director can tell.
