Tallahassee International Airport officials announced late Saturday afternoon that all departing flights for Monday have been canceled by the airlines.

As of 10:55 Friday, 595 flights were canceled coming or going to MIA which is more than half of the average daily schedule.

The airport was extremely busy on the 7th.

United also said it would cap fares at $399, but offered no details beyond that. United expanded its travel waiver to include more cities and dates, which can be found at, he said.

Flight tracking website FlightAware reports almost 7,000 flights in or out of Florida were cancelled.
