Phoenix flight to Atlanta makes emergency landing in Texas

PHOENIX (AP) - Southwest Airlines says a pressurization issue forced a flight from Phoenix to Atlanta to make an emergency landing in Texas.
    
The airline said its pilots and crew followed emergency procedures to divert and land at the nearest airport when the midflight malfunction occurred Saturday morning.
    
No one was hurt, though the plane's emergency oxygen masks were deployed. Passengers on Southwest Flight No. 118 are expected to arrive to Atlanta about seven hours late.
    
The plane that landed in Amarillo, Texas has been taken out of service for inspection and repairs.
