Potential Hurricane Causing Precautionary Changes at Orlando Airport

Hurricanes are known to impact Florida almost every year, and the season is not yet over.

In fact, we’ve seen several storms to watch lately, like Fiona and Gaston, and now, there’s a new tropical depression that could potentially be on its way to Florida. So, if you’re flying into Orlando soon, you need to be aware of some changes that have been made due to the weather.

Tropical Depression 9 is being watched now and will soon turn into a Tropical Storm. The path of the storm is not certain, but it could become a major hurricane threat for Florida.

In anticipation of this, Orlando International Airport tweeted out a message saying that pre-storm precautions and protective measures are being taken to coordinate airport activities. They said that the relocation dates for jetBlue & Caribbean Airlines to Terminal C will be rescheduled.

Terminal C is the brand new terminal that just opened up this week at the airport, and several airlines are planned to be flying out of the terminal moving forward.

At time of writing, Tropical Depression 9 could come to Florida next week as a major Category 3 hurricane, according to The Orlando Sentinel. This has caused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency in 24 counties, including Osceola, where part of Disney World is located. It has not been declared in Orange County at this time, which is where Orlando International Airport and the majority of Disney World is located.


The storm could either become Hurricane Hermine or Hurricane Ian — it just depends on how fast it intensifies compared to another new tropical depression in the Atlantic Ocean.
