JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Flights all across the country are still being affected by this massive storm. More than 5,000 flights were canceled Tuesday alone.
Superstorm Sandy may be stirring up the northeast but she's also shaking up schedules at our local airport. From Providence down to New York and New Jersey, a number of flights from Jacksonville International Airport are still grounded.
Stranded traveler Mitch Bedard has been stuck in the River City since Sunday and he got some more bad news Tuesday.
"They told me that it was going to be tomorrow. But the advisories say it's going to be through the first," said Bedard.
He's now scrambling to find a way back home to his family in Providence and fast because funds are running out. Bedard was able to book a hotel room through Tuesday night but will be camping out in Jacksonville if he's stuck in Jacksonville until Friday.
"It's horrible," said Bedard. "We come down, we were ill prepared for this. We don't have the money to support ourselves as far as lodging, food and common amenities, it's rough."
It wasn't all doom and gloom for travelers trying to leave the River City. Peter Gall and his two boys are on their way back home to mom after Sandy split up the family.
"My wife made it out on one flight yesterday and we couldn't make it on the next flight. She's at home and I got stuck," said Gall who caught a flight back home Tuesday afternoon.
According to J.I.A. officials, the airport has seen about 65 canceled flights since Sunday.
