Tropical Storm Andrea is believed to be causing a few travel delays at Jacksonville International Airport.

Airport spokeswoman Debbie Jones said Thursday morning it is hard to tell the exact reason for delays and cancellations.

She said individual airlines make those decisions, but that heavy rain from Andrea is a "safe assumption."

As of 10:35 a.m., Tampa, Denver, Chicago, Washington and Baltimore are the cities impacted by delayed flights from Jacksonville.

Jones said flight schedules are likely to change throughout the day as Andrea moves across the First Coast.
