Hurricane Irma strains travel to and from Florida

Posted: Updated:
WESTCHESTER COUNTY -

Travelers going to and from Florida have been stuck in massive delays at airports ahead of Hurricane Irma.

Westchester County Airport was bustling Friday as people arrived from Florida, some doing whatever they could to avoid the storm.

Zoe Shahaf of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, says she will be staying at the airport for an indefinite amount of time until she can book a return ticket home.

The departure lines to go to Florida were not nearly as long, but some were making their way down the coast to board up their homes before evacuating.

Fort Lauderdale International Airport and Orlando International Airport have already said they are suspending operations tomorrow due to Hurricane Irma.

Airport officials are advising people to check with their airlines to stay updated on any changes.
