Weather cancels Thunder in the Valley; will be back

The second day of the Thunder in the Valley air show was canceled today.

Spokesman Robert Kemp said it is only the second time in 17 years that a day of the show could not be held.

He said the call was made at 8 a.m. today because of the threat of severe weather.

"We couldn't take the chance of anyone being hurt," Kemp said.

Kemp said there is some money kept in reserve so the show will be back next year.

The show at the Columbus Airport raises money for various youth charities in the area. Kemp is not sure, how much money might be given out.

"This hurts. There is no doubt about it," Kemp said.

He said the show had a spectacular day on Saturday with more than 15,000 people coming through the gates.

"It was a beautiful day," Kemp said.

He believes many people came on Saturday because of the threat of rain on Sunday.
