CHARLOTTE, N.C. - For the third day in a row, there are more than a dozen flights canceled out of Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Channel 9 was at the airport Thursday morning and saw 36 cancellations -- which is down from about 100 Wednesday.

Airports in nine states are still posting cancellations, which is down from 15 Wednesday morning. Georgia and Alabama are still the most affected states.

Cancellations were also coming in as far north as Michigan and New Jersey. The Carolinas were also seeing a few cancellations.

One woman Channel 9 spoke with said her flight to South Bend, Ind., has already been changed several times.

Mississippi, Florida and Texas were also still being affected by the winter storm Thursday morning.
People said they're not only losing patience, they're also losing money from hotel rooms to food. It's expensive to be stuck at the airport.
Hotels near the airport are still benefiting. Most are completely booked with stranded passengers.
