Some travelers inconvenienced by Hurricane Earl

BRIDGEPORT - Many travelers in southwestern Connecticut say the threat of Hurricane Earl forced them to change their plans for the holiday weekend.

Several people tell News 12 Connecticut that they canceled their ferry reservations due to the storm.

The boats were able to stay on schedule despite the region's tropical storm warning. The ferry company said it expected the boats to run on a normal schedule for the rest of the night.

The company says it is making accommodations for those travelers inconvenienced by the storm. Single-day round-trip tickets bought today can be used tomorrow, as well.
