Hurricane Dorian might affect some Labor Day travelers.
If you have plans to fly this weekend, particularly to FL, we strongly recommend you check with your airline about possible contingency plans. #HurricaneDorian is almost certainly going to affect flights in that region. We wish our friends in the Sunshine State the best of luck.
