Silver Airways cancels flights out of Tampa ahead of Hurricane Dorian

Florida

TAMPA, Fla. (AP/WFLA) – Nearly 1,000 flights have been canceled in Florida on Labor Day as Hurricane Dorian barrels toward the U.S. East Coast.

The flight-tracking site FlightAware on Monday listed 990 cancellations into or out of airports in Orlando, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Palm Beach.

On Monday, Tampa International Airport said Silver Airways has canceled flights out of Tampa. Operations will resume on Wednesday morning. The airport advises all passengers to check their airline for any flight updates.

As of around 11 a.m. Monday, the center of the Category 5 storm was around 30 miles east-northeast of Freeport on Grand Bahama and 110 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida. Top sustained winds remain at 155 mph

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says that although the official forecast does not show Dorian making landfall in Florida, the hurricane could deviate from that prediction and move very near or over the coast.

The center also said the likelihood was increasing of strong winds and dangerous storm surge along the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina later this week.
