LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) --Some travel agencies have been working after-hours to re-route clients due to the devastating hurricanes.

Travel agents in Lynchburg have been doing their best to keep up with the changes.

They suggest that travelers have a back up plan.

One local newlywed couple say they were worried they would have no honeymoon when they heard about the storms.

Rebecca Horchler and her husband made it to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, but may still experience interference with the weather.

"In the next 48-hours, we're supposed to start experiencing 80 mile per hour winds," she says. "And they don't want anybody near the water."

Travel agent Glenda Frye says travelers are strongly encouraged to get insurance if they are thinking about traveling to the Caribbean since hurrican season is in the fall.

The travel agents say many places devastated by the storms are expected to be up and running by Christmas.
