Hurricane Irma: Airports, Seaports and Rail Mostly Returned to Normalcy

13 SEP 2017 – Airports, seaports and rail operations in Florida mostly returned to normalcy Wednesday following a devastating strike by Hurricane Irma earlier this week.

Flights have resumed at most Florida airports, but the prospect of delays and cancellations remained Wednesday as airlines rebooted their schedules there. As of 3 p.m. ET, more than 1,000 flights had been canceled nationwide for Wednesday and another 485 for Thursday, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. Nearly all of those came on flights to or from one of four airports: Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Fort Lauderdale. Even looking ahead to Friday, more than 230 U.S. flights had already been canceled – mostly in Miami – as of Wednesday afternoon.
