Irene Causes Travel Woes; Airlines Waive Fees


Hurricane Irene has caused some problems at airports across the U.S. as severe weather hits the east coast.

American Airlines has already canceled hundreds of flights in Miami and the Bahamas because of the storm. Several flights were cut at Orlando International Airport also.

Most local flights are back on time, though at least two planes headed for New York were grounded as of Friday morning.

Many airlines are waiving fees for travelers who change their flight plans in the coming days.

Meanwhile, cruise ship routes are also being reworked.

Some of the ships that left Port Canaveral over the past few days decided to skip certain locations because of the high winds and rough surf.

Also, Amtrak stopped train service south of Washington, D.C. for Friday.
