HURRICANE IRMA: 4 in your corner note: The following is a press release from Jet Blue on what they are doing regarding Hurricane Irma.

We have cancelled approximately 150 flights as of Wednesday at 4 p.m.

We are taking a number of steps to assist existing customers and support new reservations for those looking to evacuate:

For existing reservations, JetBlue is waiving cancellation fees as well as waiving change fees and differences in air fare for rebooking.

We have added flights to our schedule out of select cities where we have aircraft available.

For those looking to evacuate areas in the hurricane's path, we are offering any remaining seats in select markets at a reduced fare of $99 - $159 including government taxes.

Due to high interest in this offer, seats are predominantly sold out.

They are also increasing the size of aircrafts flying from San Juan and South Florida so more people can leave.
