AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Heavy fog has delayed dozens of flights in Texas.

Tracker Flightaware.com reports nearly 60 flight delays Tuesday in and out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

The National Weather Service had issued a dense fog advisory until midday Tuesday for the Austin and San Marcos areas.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a ground stop for the airport in Austin, due to the heavy fog.

Airport spokesman Jim Halbrook says the ground stop, when flights are required to remain at their departure points, lasted less than two hours and was lifted by early Tuesday afternoon.
