On 29 December 2009, the terminal building flooded due to severe weather and leaks in the roof. This caused many problems inside the terminal, no flights were cancelled although some passengers were unable to check in due to the flooding.
On 24 October 2011, an overnight storm had collapsed portions of terminal roofs and blown out most windows in the control tower. Four people were slightly and one severely injured.
