American Airlines adds flights to get people out of islands before Irma hits

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - American Airlines has added extra flights out of two Caribbean islands to get people out of the path of Hurricane Irma, a powerful Category 5 storm.

The flights were added in St. Maarten and St. Kitts and Nevis. Those are in addition to regularly scheduled flights Tuesday and Wednesday to Miami.
 
Both islands are part of the northern Leeward Islands and are under a hurricane warning as Irma approaches the region Tuesday.
 
American says it expects to make additional flight changes as it monitors the storm.
