Flights canceled at Blue Grass Airport ahead of Florence

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY/AP) - Forecasters still aren't sure where exactly Hurricane Florence will make landfall. But some 1.7 million people are under mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders and nearly 1,000 flights have been canceled through Friday.

Allegiant flights to and from Myrtle Beach are canceled at Lexington's Blue Grass Airport Thursday.

Businesses across the Carolinas, Virginia and Georgia will likely suffer financial losses from the approaching storm, with ports closing, farmers moving their livestock and expected power outages that could last for weeks.
