Sen. Ron Wydens scheduled town hall meeting in Brookings Wednesday was canceled because of bad flying weather.

Lise Markgaf, at the senators Portland office, said Wyden conducted his Coos Bay meeting Wednesday morning.

She said Wydens pilots then told him there had been thunderstorms and lightning between North Bend and Brookings. They ruled it unsafe to fly.

Markgaf said Wyden was sorry to miss the town hall meeting and will reschedule one for Brookings in October or November.
