LAX Flights Cancelled Today Due To Hurricane Dorian, Disneyland Closed Down

NASA Astronaut Christina Hammock Koch

NASA satellite imagery through Monday night showed spots in the Bahamas where Dorian had dumped as much as 35 inches (89 centimeters) of rain, said private meteorologist Ryan Maue. Other reports involved a group of eight children and five adults stranded on a highway and two storm shelters that flooded.

The National Hurricane center said Dorian is expected to move "dangerously close" to the Florida east coast late Monday through Wednesday evening and then move north to coastal Georgia and SC on Wednesday night and Thursday.

NASA astronaut Christian Koch snapped this image of Hurricane Dorian from the International Space Station during a flyover on Monday. In comparison, 336 flights had been canceled for Sunday.

The impact on travelers from Hurricane Dorian lessened somewhat on Wednesday, even as the devastation from its wind and rain has yet to hit the USA mainland.

Airline industry sources said 1,200 flights across the country (including those in Southern California) were delayed and canceled Tuesday as Dorian moved away from badly battered Bahamas and sets a plodding course for Florida.

Forecasters say "the hurricane will then move dangerously close to the Florida east coast late today through Wednesday evening, very near the Georgia and SC coasts Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina coast late Thursday".

Nine counties in Florida have issued mandatory evacuations.

Three flights were canceled at Los Angeles International Airport compared to seven flights on Labor Day. Millions from Florida to SC have been ordered to evacuate. "Then I called yesterday, and they gave me one for today", Cunningham said. Major Florida airports in Orlando, Daytona Beach, Pompano Beach, Fernandina Beach and Jacksonville were closed due to the storm.

American Airlines put a travel alert in place which allowed customers to rebook without change fees at 20 airports, including coastal ones in Georgia, North Carolina and SC as the storm prepares to hit those states in the coming days.

"There will be considerable impacts and damage to coastal areas, with at least some effects felt inland as well", the office said Monday in a statement. Allen in 1980 was the most powerful, the NHC said.
