MINNEAPOLIS - More than 10,000 flights have been cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. At Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport, 100 flights have been cancelled with more to come Tuesday.
"Anyone trying to get to the East Coast is going to have a tough time," said Pat Hogan, a spokesperson for MSP. "It has a ripple affect across the country."
MSP is also being used as a holding facility for airplanes from airports in the path of the storm. Several planes from United Airlines are sitting empty waiting for the storm to push through.
The same goes for travelers.
"I'm trying to wait for the next flight to Philadelphia," says Sarai Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, a member of the Air Force, was supposed to report to McGuire Air Force Base, but she's planning on spending her second night stuck at MSP.
"There's not much I can do. I don't have any other options."
Airport officials advise travelers to check their flight status ahead of time regardless of where you're headed.
