KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Aviation Department is cautioning that Hurricane Irene could disrupt flights this weekend from Kansas City International Airport.

People planning to fly to the East Coast are being urged to check with their airline before leaving for KCI. The aviation department says most airlines are letting travelers change their flights to the hurricane-affected region without penalty.

Some airlines began canceling flights Friday.
