Travelers stranded by Sandy return

Posted: Updated:

Some people who were stranded on the East Coast as superstorm Sandy roared through are now starting to return home, and FOX 9 News spoke to several passengers about their experience.

Watch the video for more information.

Nearly 3,000 flights were canceled on Wednesday. While that may sound like a lot, it's a significant step away from the 15,000 flights canceled between Monday and Tuesday.

The St. Cloud State women's hockey team spent two days stuck in Providence, Rhode Island, while they waited for a flight out of Boston -- but they found ways to entertain themselves, such as filing YouTube weather reports, while waiting for the storm to clear.

Air traffic is starting to get moving again, but there's still a big mess at New York's Laguardia Airport, which remains close as trucks work to pump the water off the runways.

In Minnesota, however, things seem to be back to normal -- except that some of the information airlines are sending out through their websites isn't quite accurate. Some of the displays in the airport show arrivals from Laguardia despite its continued closure.
