My husband and I saved up some vacation time for the end of August/beginning of September, but it looks like many of the places we might want to try to visit (Hawaii, Caribbean, etc) have their main hurricane season during that time. I understand that there are some locations we might be able to choose that are hit less often, but since this is forecast to be a busier-than-usual hurricane season, I'd like to make sure we have a plan for what will happen if a hurricane does hit while we're on vacation.
From what I can tell online, it doesn't look like they can always forecast a hurricane with enough time to cancel our 7-10 trip completely before we even depart. In light of this fact, but also in light of the fact that they ARE able to give us at least a few days notice, I was wondering: how hard would it be to get a flight out if it looks like a hurricane is headed our way and we're on an island? Is it typically an option that would be available to us in the event of an impending hurricane, or is that unrealistic? Mostly, I'd just like (for peace of mind) to know that there's no chance of being stranded on the island with no choice but to ride out the hurricane if we are unlucky enough to be there when one hits.
