    HYANNIS, Mass. - Dorian is on its way out of New England and ferries are expected to resume on a case-by-case basis.

    Steamship Authority tweeted Saturday morning that a freight trip will run from Woods Hole to Vineyard Haven and when service resumes to Martha's Vineyard, all trips to and from Oak Bluffs will be diverted to Vineyard Haven for the rest of the day.

    Earlier this morning, Hy-Line cancelled its 9:30 a.m. service to Nantucket and its 11:10 a.m. ferry to Hyannis because of wind.

    There are about 40 weddings on Nantucket this weekend that people from all over are trying to get to.

    Some are dealing with delayed or canceled flights, and nearly everyone is dealing with the uncertainly of canceled ferries.

    On Friday, one woman re-arranged her flight from Virginia while another caught a ferry a day early to make it in time.

    "We would swim if we had to to get to this wedding," Dover resident Laura Hanley said. "Believe you me."

    Amy Kirner was thankful to have made it from Virginia Beach.

    "We're happy to be here, we are happy to have made it and that the airlines and ferry could accommodate us."

    The Hyannis triathlon was scheduled for Saturday morning, bringing hundreds of out-of-town athletes. Organizers canceled the race yesterday fearing that the swim portion could be too dangerous.

    Some athletes are planning a pop up race tomorrow.

    All ferries between Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are canceled for Saturday. 

    Damage has been reported in Norwell this morning.
