As Hurricane Matthew threatens to make landfall in Florida, flights to the Sunshine state are being cancelled across the country.
Nashville International Airport (BNA) so far cancelled six flights to Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, as the hurricane moves towards hitting land most likely by Thursday night or Friday morning.
More cancellations may come as the “strongest hurricane strike in decades,” according to the National Weather Service, is incoming for the east Florida and Georgia coasts. NWS predicts its path, moving towards the Bahamas this morning as a Category 3, will hit Florida as a Category 4 and turn up the east coast. Winds have reached above 140 miles per hour.
More than 2,500 flights nationwide are cancelled because of Hurricane Matthew’s projected path to the East Coast.
Miami International Airport ceased all operations at 11 a.m. CST Thursday.
