    Holiday Weekend Travelers Wary as Dorian Approaches

    Hurricane Dorian has people up and down the East Coast on pins and needles as it barrels towards Florida.

    The storm, now a Category 3 hurricane, is expected to slam into Florida as a major Category 4 storm on Monday. As of Friday, New England looks unlikely to take a hit from Dorian, and flights to Florida have been on time, but that is likely to change over the weekend, once the storm settles over Florida. 

    Among those most worried are travelers who are coming and going through Logan International Airport in Boston. 

    Josue Lopez had to change his flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico, twice to avoid the storm, and he is "checking the news all the time."

    The storm only grazed the island, where Lopez has family. His life changed after Hurricane Maria pummelled Puerto Rico in 2017, after which he didn't hear from his family for three months.

    Meghan Harris is flying to Orlando, and her anxiety is rising as Florida prepares for Dorian's impact.

    "I'm really nervous about it, I'm hoping it doesn't get there. I'm just trying to get to my family right now, I just hope they're okay," she said.

    Florida Governon Ron DeSantis says evacuations will likely occur if Dorian stays on track to reach a Category 4 storm.
