Terror warning won't ground residents

(07/30/03) STAMFORD - Connecticut travelers don't seem phased by the latest warning from the federal government.

So far, the national security level hasn't been raised although Wednesday President Bush alerted the airline industry to take greater precautions screening overseas travelers. But, the warning sounds all too familiar to many people.

Millie Klein co-owns Way to Go travel in Norwalk. She says her business initially dropped about 40 percent after 9/11 because fewer people were flying. Now she says she rarely gets cancellations following federal warnings.
