As expected, Hurricane Irma is causing changes, delays, and cancellations to flights, trains, and the roadways in and out of Florida. Let’s take a look at what we know right now:
Orlando International Airport
Last night, the airport reported on their website that they would be ceasing all commercial flights starting on Saturday, September 9 at 5 pm. That message has since been taken down. The current message states “Please check with with your airline for the status of specific flights.” Most airlines are waving change fees.

Highways and Roadways
Northbound Highways in Florida, including I-75 and I-95 have been seeing heavy delays as people are trying to evacuate ahead of the storm. Gas stations have run out or are rapidly running out of gas. Governor Scott of Florida has ordered that all gas takers delivering gas to stations across the state have a police escort to get the gas to the people the quickest.
