(CNN) — Vacationers along the Southeast coast for the Labor Day holiday and the unofficial close of summer are in for a nerve-racking weekend.
While Florida may not receive a direct hit, dangerous storm conditions are still anticipated in the state in the coming days. Meanwhile, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina are now on high alert as the storm approaches those coasts.
Hurricane Dorian’s shifting path means the holiday weekend forecast looks better than anticipated in some places, but there will still be dangers for beach goers.
“High surf and very dangerous rip currents are expected all along the East Coast from Florida up through the Carolinas through the weekend,” said CNN Senior Meteorologist Dave Hennen.
Cumberland Island National Seashore, located on the largest barrier island off the coast of Georgia, is closing to the public on Saturday. The last ferry from the island leaves at 2:45 p.m.
Fort Frederica National Monument, located on nearby St. Simons Island, is also closing on Saturday, according to a National Park Service press release.
Flights and trains
“We expect these numbers to increase in the upcoming days, especially at airports in the region where Dorian is to make landfall,” the company said in a statement.
Airlines have been issuing waivers for several days to travelers headed for destinations in the storm’s projected path.
More destinations in Georgia and the Carolinas are likely to be added to airline advisories as the storm progresses northward.
Orlando International Airport will cease operations at 2 a.m. Monday local time, according to an official statement from the airport.
Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale International Airport are both monitoring the storm’s progress, according to advisories posted to their websites.
Royal Caribbean has listed each modification online. Some cruises have modified itineraries due to the closure of CocoCay. Others have been extended or shortened or will have delayed departures.
On its website, Carnival Cruise Line listed a series of sailings it is monitoring and modifying out of Port Canaveral, Port of Miami, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale and Tampa in Florida and Charleston, South Carolina.
Amusement parks and other attractions
While Dorian’s turn toward the Carolinas may spare Florida from the worst of the storm’s effects, Galaxy’s Edge faces a soggy opening weekend.
The center moved its $650 million Mobile Launch Platform inside on Friday.
