Hurricane fears force closure of Orlando theme parks

Wednesday, 28 Sep, 2022 0

As Hurricane Ian inched closer to landfall, central Florida theme parks have closed for two days.

Walt Disney World closed all four parks on Wednesday and Thursday.

Friday’s scheduled sailing of the Disney Wish from Port Canaveral has been cancelled.

“Due to the weather conditions most recently forecasted for Port Canaveral and Central Florida and the impact that it might have on port operations, the September 30 sailing  has been cancelled,” Disney Crruise Line said.

Universal Orlando announced closure of parks and SeaWorld Orlando will do the same.

Hurricane Ian is expected to come ashore near.

Governor Ron DeSantis expects power cuts to be ‘in the millions.’

Up to 18 inches of rain is possible

DeSantis said: “You’re going to end up with really significant storm surge and you’re going to end up with really significant flooding. This is the kind of storm surge that is life threatening.”

Two tornadoes at the edge of Hurricane Ian touched down in South Florida on Tuesday night.

Over two million Florida residents were under evacuation orders.

Earlier Hurricane Ian left the entire island of Cuba without power on Tuesday night.
