One family from Lynnfield, Massachusetts boarded a plane to the Bahamas Friday morning, despite concerns that the weather would disrupt their plans.

“It’s a great feeling! We’re excited," Daniela Rocco of Lynnfield said. "We were nervous that we were going to get delayed, but we think we’re okay.”

Some families tried to leave the area before the storm hit - a number headed for Florida. Many people also had COVID-related concerns.
