We live in Fort Myers and we're worried about it. The stores in our area were bought out of water, batteries and other hurricane supplies today. But it will be at least 2 more days before the forecast firms up. Up until last nights predications, we weren't worried about it at all.

Better check your airline if flying your decision maybe already made for you!

I have a place on a FMB and I'm worried regardless- prayin for our community, SWFL, and everyone in path.

Looking right now that you will get wind and rain but will miss the actual full brunt as it will be on the east side.

My niece just had a baby and will probably have to evacuate.

Whether the airport you are flying into is open will depend on where the Irma's path ends up going and the damages in the vicinity. Evacuation statuses will also come into play. I would not count on things being open by the 12th and even if the airport is the hotel may not be and beach may be a mess. All I can suggest at this point is keep an eye on things and talk to your airline/hotel about options. Good luck!
