(WPTV) — Hundreds of flights in and out of Florida have been canceled as Hurricane Dorian hovers off the state's coast.
More than 1,400 flights have been canceled between Miami International, Palm Beach International, Fort Lauderdale International, and Orlando International airports between Monday and Tuesday, according to FlightAware.
The flights represent both arrivals and departures at the airports and were recorded at 12:20 a.m. Tuesday.
PBI will suspend all commercial air service Tuesday and officials said they hope to reopen with limited operations on Wednesday, or as soon as condition safely allow them to do so.
Fort Lauderdale closed Monday at 12 p.m., but intends to reopen Tuesday after 12 p.m.
Orlando will close at 2 a.m. Tuesday until further notice. Miami has not announced any airport-wide closures but cautioned travelers to arrive at least two hours before departure and monitor the weather.
Officials at each airport have tweeted that they are monitoring Hurricane Dorian's conditions to plan when to resume flights.
FlightAware reported 1,494 and 1,318 cancellations Monday and Tuesday, respectively, for all flights within, into, or out of the U.S. According to the Associated Press, the website says it typically sees about 50 to 100 canceled flights a day and the uptick was mostly due to Dorian.
Monday, Hurricane Dorian remained over the Grand Bahamas, pummeling the island as a Category 4 storm with 130 mph winds.
Dorian is forecasted to move dangerously close to Florida's east coast late Monday through Wednesday, before continuing north along Georgia and the Carolinas. More flight cancellations and delays could result along those states when the storm arrives.
