Travel alerts is a pretty general term. It can refer to acts of terror. It also might mean weather storms. Then there are travel alerts that are specific to your travel time. Namely, delays or canceling of flights. When it's time to leave most people just head to the airport and hope for the best. However, if you are at a place that won't need you to check out right away you might want to rethink that plan. Call the airport the day of departure. If there is a problem they will probably know. If it's a delay or the flight isn't even taking off you can stay where you are. Even stay another day. Instead of getting stuck in the airport.
