Over three hundred people made an unexpected stop in the Ozarks after two Allegiant Air flights were diverted to the Springfield National Airport Thursday night.
They were headed Cedar Rapids, Iowa but were forced to land after winter weather swept across the Midwest.
The American Red Cross and Greene County Emergency Management responded to the airport to lend a hand.
Greg Gaines with the Red Cross says they are doing everything they can to keep them comfortable.
"We set up about forty to fifty cots and blankets, and we've got some hot meals so people are able to get some good food and we've got plenty of water and blankets and just making sure they are comfortable during their stay here in the Ozarks," Gain said.
