In a press release sent out early this morning, the South Carolina Aquarium says they're expecting the three turtles to arrive at the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport around 3 p.m.

First reporting:

Monday's bad weather put a halt on the flight scheduled to deliver a loggerhead and two Kemp's Ridley turtles to marine life hospitals.

The loggerhead is headed to the South Carolina Aquarium and the Kemp's Ridleys are making their way to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.
