Florida airports to close during Hurricane Irma
Yesterday – by Staff reporter by FTW Online
The three largest international airports in Florida in the United States have announced that commercial operations will be suspended on Saturday, September 9.
“Our Emergency Management Team is actively monitoring the weather conditions and working closely with the county and city emergency management agencies and our airline partners to determine the operational status of Orlando International Airport,” said executive director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, Phil Brown.
Miami International Airport has, however, noted that the Federal Aviation Administration will not close its control tower at the airport until sustained winds reach 55 miles per hour.
