Sunday afternoon's strong storms brought things to a standstill at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

No flights were allowed in or out of F-L-L for slightly more than an hour after lightning strikes opened up three fist-sized holes on the airport's only operational runway. The holes have been patched up and the airport is operating normally.

27 flights had to be diverted to other airports in Southern Florida.
