LEE COUNTY, Fla. - We're expecting a visitor who requires a lot of security in Southwest Florida this week.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, there are flight restrictions in place for Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) on Friday night, and then on Sunday morning.

That means no one can fly over the area.

This usually means, someone with a high profile, like the President or the Vice President, is making a visit.

Vice President Mike Pence and his family have come to Sanibel to vacation several times. He was just here in June.
