As Hurricane Dorian makes its way across the Atlantic, the odds of the storm making a Florida landfall as a major hurricane are looking increasingly likely. As Miamians make lines for gas and stock up on potable water, Miami's arts and cultural institutions are also prepping for the storm. Some museums have already closed, others will close for the weekend, and some events have been postponed. Wondering if your weekend plans are still scheduled to go on? Check in with New Times to get the latest updates on Dorian-related postponements and cancellations.
