NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Flight delays and cancelations continue to be an issue at Charleston International Airport, and now the airport’s administrative staff is doing their best to accommodate guests during their extended stay.

With a lot of delays and cancelations, many travelers are wondering how they’re going to get to their destinations.

Tonight, as flight delays and cancelations persist, frustrations mount.

“This is kind of really super unacceptable,” Marle Clouser, who is traveling to Houston, said.

Thousands of flights have been nixed across the nation, including 18 in Charleston, which has caught many by surprise.

“I was like, ‘Man, what is going on?’” Kassidy Cromer, who is traveling to Denver, said. “There was just no flights, none. So, it’s just like crazy to see.”

Southwest Airlines is leading the list of cancelations, with Breeze Airways and American Airlines also experiencing several setbacks.

Many travelers are having to pay thousands out of pocket just to make it home.

“We found a very expensive flight on United Airlines,” Clouser said, “and we booked it.”

Airport officials say they’re doing all they can to accommodate travelers stuck in the Holy City for longer than anticipated.

“We’re making sure the airlines,” Charleston International Airport CEO Elliot Summey said, “if they’re delayed, TSA is staying open long enough to make sure people can get through the TSA checkpoint. We’re working with our concessioners, with our restaurants, with our retail stores, helping them understand, let them know real time what’s going on. So, they’re staying open later.”

Cromer says she’s trying to remain optimistic.

“I’m just glad I made it here for the holidays,” she said, “and I’m not too made to be stuck because it is a lot warmer here and it is good I’m getting to spend more time with my family than expected.”

Following this holiday travel whirlwind, many say they’ll be relieved when they finally make it home.

“We can’t wait to get home,” Clouser said. “We’re already like, ‘Okay, we know where the car is, we’re going to get our car from the lot. We got to pick up the dogs.’ We got a whole thing, but no, we can’t wait to get back because it feels like survival mode right now.”

Charleston International Airport says they’re not experiencing any luggage backups unlike other airports across the country.

SC has 2 of the best places to visit around the world in 2023, NY Times says. Can you guess where?

Charleston and Greenville were listed among 52 places around the world as places to visit in 2023 by The New York Times.

Greenville was listed as 14th, Charleston 32. They were two of 10 U.S. locales on the list.

First place was London, which The Times said offers something for everyone as it undergoes a transition citing new shopping, entertainment and history opportunities and of course the monarchy itself with the coronation of King Charles III.

Of Greenville, lifestyle journalist and podcaster Ari Bendersky wrote, “Set in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville has established itself on the culinary scene.

”The quaint city of about 70,000 has more than 200 restaurants — 85 percent of which are local,” he wrote.

He said people might visit Greenville for outdoor adventure, but they’ll leave after experiencing foods from around the world, including the second location of Charleston’s Lewis Barbecue; Mr. Crisp for seafood, Keipi for Georgian khachapuri and ancient wines; Aryana for Afghani and Califas for Mexican birria tacos.

He quoted Sid Evans, the editor in chief of Southern Living, as saying “The food here is adventurous, and the chefs have embraced the global influences shaping the modern South.”

Charleston was added to the list due to opening of the $100 million International African American Museum.

“Charleston’s brutal history of slavery can be overshadowed by a romanticized portrait of a city with charm, award-winning restaurants and plantation gardens,” wrote Lauren Matison, a freelance writer whose work appears in numerous national travel magazines.

The museum will will help “display the city’s complicated past.”

The museum was built on what was Gadsden’s Wharf, where an estimated 30,000 African captives landed.

“The sleek, single-story building floats atop 18 pillars clad in tabby, a kind of concrete made from oyster shells, and houses a genealogy center, a social justice action lab and 10 exhibit galleries that include stories of slavery and the Great Migration,“ she wrote. “A public outdoor space offers an African Ancestors Memorial Garden featuring indigenous plants like Lowcountry sweet grass and Canary Island palm trees.”

Both cities have made dozens of best of lists over the years, including Conde Nast’s 10 best small cities in the United States.

With London as No .1, the Times named its top 10 places to visit this year as Morioko, Japan; Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in Arizona; Kilmartin Glen in Scotland; Auckland in New Zealand; Palm Springs, California; Kangaroo Island in Australia; Vjosa River in Albania; Accra in Ghana; and Tromso, Norway.

Other United States destinations include Tucson, Arizona; the Alaska Railroad; Louisville, Kentucky; Macon, Georgia; Grand Junction, Colorado; American Prairie in Montana; New Haven, Connecticut; and the Black Hills in South Dakota.

3 UFO sightings reported across the Lowcountry last fall

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Three residents in various areas across the Lowcountry reported UFO sightings to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) last fall.

The first was reported off Edisto Island in October – the witness described seeing a light that appeared above Botany Bay during the day on October 15.

“Taking pictures at Botany Bay on South Carolina coast we noticed a light which appeared in some photos but not all of the same scene,” the witness reported. “Light appeared to be moving in live pictures and then disappears.”

Two photographs were provided which appear to show a teal-in-color spec of light high above the beach.

Another sighting was reported in Summerville just a week before the Thanksgiving holiday. “While sitting out by the fire just after 8 PM, I looked up to see two glowing orange lights flying over our house. There were three of us who saw them, and we all agreed that they were distinctly orange in color,” the witness described in their report to the NUFORC.

According to the witness, the lights appeared to be flying low but quickly.

“The first ones didn’t seem to blink or flicker. There were no aerial navigation lights either- red or green or white. They did not bob or weave. There was no noise associated with them,” the witness wrote.

The witness said there were airplanes flying in other directions with sound associated with the flyovers. But these were different.

“The first two flew parallel to one another and then seemed to curve slightly toward the south. They were coming from the west and flying towards the east. We then looked up and coming over the crest of the house were three more of these flying lights,” the witness reported.

The witness continued, “They were flying roughly in a triangle, and again they were glowing orange with a steady light. As they disappeared behind the pine tree boughs … another one came over the house.”

A third sighting took place over Holly Hill just a day later. It was described as a diamond-shaped figure that hovered above one area and made “sudden upward jerks” at times.

“I was leaving home to go to my mother in laws approx. 9:00 p.m. on November 19, 2022. It was dark of course. Sky appeared to be clear with only stars visible. When I got to the end of my road at the stop sign, I noticed this diamond shape object with flashing lights just hoovering- it had lights of red and blue flashing then green would flash at different times,” the witness wrote.

The witness told the NUFORC that the object did not appear to be a plane because it just didn’t change positions or seem to be moving closer or further away.

“This diamond shape object was just hoovering after watching it for approx. 10 minutes; it had me kinda shooken [SIC] up so I left to proceed to my mother in laws … I tried to catch video and images. But nothing compares to the naked eye.”

These accounts were reported to the National UFO Reporting Center, which was founded in 1974 by UFO investigator Robert J. Gribble. The center’s primary purpose, according to the center’s website, is to receive, record, corroborate and document reports from individuals who have been witness to unusual, possibly UFO-related events.

The center has processed over 150,000 reports since it was established.

William & Mary Tribe (8-10) vs. College of Charleston Cougars (18-1)

The Line: College of Charleston Cougars -16.5 / William & Mary Tribe +16.5; Over/Under: +144.5 (Get latest betting odds)

The William & Mary Tribe and the Charleston Cougars meet in college basketball action from the TD Arena on Monday night.

The William & Mary Tribe will try to build on a 69-67 win over UNC-Wilmington in their last matchup. Anders Nelson leads the Tribe in scoring and assists with 11.4 PPG and 4.7 APG while Gabe Dorsey has 10.6 PPG. Ben Wight has 10.4 PPG with 4.7 RPG while Noah Collier has 9.2 PPG as well as a team-high 8.5 RPG to lead the Tribe in rebounding up to this point in the season. As a team, William & Mary is averaging 69.1 PPG on 43.4% shooting from the field, 36.2% from three and 67.1% from the foul line this season.

The Charleston Cougars will look to build on their 78-60 win over Elon last time out. Dalton Bolon leads the Cougars in scoring with 13.5 PPG and Ryan Larson has 11.2 PPG while also posting a team-high 4.1 APG to lead the Cougars in the assist department while Reyne Smith has 10.7 PPG. Ante Brzovic has 10.7 PPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for the Cougars this year while Jaylon Scott also leads Charleston on the glass with 5.2 RPG so far this season. As a team, Charleston is averaging 80.2 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field, 32.9% from three and 74.3% from the foul line this season.

William & Mary is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. Charleston is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss while the under is 9-0 in their last 9 home games.

I get the case to be made for William & Mary here as this is still a big number for conference play, but I have to roll with Charleston here. The Cougars have simply been the better team overall and have been one of the elite teams in the CAA for some time now. I just see no reason to step in front of Charleston up to this point so give me the Cougars big here.
