Update: Broward County intends to resume airport operations after noon on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

If you’re slated to fly in or out of Fort Lauderdale Monday, you’d better call your airline.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International is closing at noon due to winds associated with Hurricane Dorian “until further notice,” the airport has announced.

“Airport officials, in coordination with the airlines and the FAA Tower, will determine when the airport will reopen,” according to the airport’s official Twitter feed.

As of Sunday, the airport had reported 44 flight delays and 36 cancellations.

Miami International Airport is operating as usual at this time.
