Airport officials said a toilet near the C5 gate near Southwest clogged around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities at the Nashville airport say a toilet had been stuffed with paper towels, and overflowed.

However, despite their efforts, up to 200 of those bags may have been contaminated, a representative for Southwest Airlines told Fox News.

The overflowing water went down a drain and seeped through the ceiling, dripping onto bags from a Southwest flight.

Expandable storage is available on the Redmi Note 4 via a hybrid dual-SIM card configuration, supporting microSD cards (up 128GB). Sensors on board include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, electronic compass, and proximity sensor.

The airline is now sanitizing the bags and offering replacements on a "case-by-case basis".

"We appreciate our Nashville Employee's efforts to contact our Customers, process the bags, and reunite our customers with their luggage", Southwest wrote in a statement. She further claimed that passengers weren't initially notified of the problem, but rather told that "issues with the luggage" were delaying the flight.

Riley also confirmed to WRKN that she was offered $100 per day as compensation for her baggage, which airport officials held for cleaning purposes. Unfortunately, this was not the first time the airport has suffered a leak, and officials are mulling "structural changes" to its drainage system.
