LANSING, Mich. — Canceled--in big, bold, red letters.

That's what travelers at Fort Lauderdale's airport will see on the departure and arrivals board.

The airport closed at noon Monday as Hurricane Dorian spins through the Atlantic nearing the U.S. east coast.

Dorian was downgraded to a category four hurricane, but the storm will still bring powerful winds and rain to Florida this week.
