Both major airports that service Houston, Texas, will reopen for limited service on Wednesday, with full services being restored by the weekend.

“Bush Airport is planning on resuming flights today at 4 pm,” George Bush Intercontinental Airport officials wrote on the official Facebook page. “We will attempt to begin a phased return to service, with full service expected by this weekend.”

The roads around the area are still littered with debris and standing water as the flooding clears, and officials made sure to warn potential travelers to be careful when getting to and from the airport.

“Many roads around the City of Houston are still unsafe for travel, therefore, we urge all passengers to take their time arriving to the airports and to solidify a safe route to and from our facilities.”

Local William P. Hobby airport will also be resuming limited service Wednesday, according to its own Facebook page.

There are currently 50 passengers stranded at one of the two airports, according to local reporting. They were stranded since the airports were closed last weekend when Harvey made landfall as a category 4 hurricane. Millions have been displaced as more than 51 inches of rain hit the Houston metropolitan area.
