Hurricane Ian now has the Sunshine State in its crosshairs, forcing some people from Florida to make last-minute trips up north as the monster storm draws closer.
Travelers coming into Westchester County Airport were on some of the last flights out of Central Florida before the major airports there shut down. There were two flights from Orlando and one from Tampa expected at the arrivals terminal. 
There have been several delays and cancellations at those Florida airports, and many desperate passengers.
One of those Orlando flights was supposed to arrive in Westchester already, but it was delayed. 
Orlando International is suspending all flights beginning Wednesday at 10:30.
Tampa Airport is currently shutting down to give them time to secure the terminals' jet bridges before the worst of the storm hits.
Tampa Airport officials said people who didn't get a flight can't camp out in the airport. They're being referred to storm-shelters.
