Aerostar called on passengers to be vigilant and check the status of their flights with their airlines in the face of the possibility of further cancellations.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC, in English) This morning issued a hurricane warning for Puerto Rico, including Vieques and Culebra, due to the possibility that Tropical Storm Fiona could still bring hurricane force and winds over the island.

Hurricane watch means hurricane conditions are possible in warning areas for the next few hours.

The NHC forecast says Fiona will continue to approach Puerto Rico as a storm, but will reach hurricane strength tomorrow Sunday, when it is already near or over the southwest of the island with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.
