Airport Marketing Director Eddie Grant says due to the volume of cancelations nationwide, flights are filling up fast.  The local airport only provides flights to Chicago and the earliest availability at the moment to rebook is Thursday.  Grant says the best way to check schedules is via and the airport’s twitter and Facebook accounts.
