PHOENIX — Editor's note: The above video aired during a previous broadcast.

More than 100 flights out of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix were canceled or delayed Thursday morning after monsoon storms drenched the Valley.

The airport's website listed that 14 flights were canceled and 92 flights were delayed at 7:45 a.m., for a total of 106 flights affected.

Southwest, the airline with the most flights affected by the airport issues, said the issues were caused by a lightning strike that knocked out connectivity in their systems. The airline has since said they are beginning to resume operations.

Sky Harbor, when asked about the issues, said the delays and cancelations were "due to weather," but deferred to airlines for more specific information. The airport's Twitter account also recommended travelers check their flight information before coming to the airport.
