Heavy snow falling in parts of New York and New Jersey is causing issues in Columbus.

The areas, which were hit hard by Superstorm Sandy last week, are now dealing with a nor’easter stalled over the region.

Flights in and out of Port Columbus International Airport have been delayed and canceled.

More than 13,000 flights around the country have been impacted by the storm.

At Port Columbus, more than a dozen flights were impacted.

The cancelations included flights between Columbus and New York City and Newark, N.J.

As of Thursday morning, flights were only canceled through 11 a.m.

Maddy Maler and Patrick Styles were attempting to get home for almost a day, anxious to share their recent engagement.

“It has been a long one, we have been rerouted twice,” Styles said. “We got a phone call on our flight coming into Columbus saying we’re delayed another 2.5 hours.”

For hours, the couple slept at Port Columbus after their flight to New York was canceled again.

“We would be on the plane like, ‘Ah, gosh. I want to go home!’” Maler said.

Despite multiple setbacks, Maler and Styles remained optimistic.

“There’s always light at the end of the rainbow,” Maler said. “I just want to be home.”

It was unclear if those cancelations would continue.
