JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Reports of flooding near Universal Orlando and damage to rides are coming in amid heavy rainfall and wind from Tropical Storm Ian.
Jeff Allen of News13 reports that the entrance to the Double Tree by Hilton hotel at Universal Studios is completely submerged.
"Those cars across Major Blvd used to be working cars, likely not anymore,"he tweeted.
Additionally, several photos are circulating of damage to the Jurassic Park ride.
The damage has not been confirmed by the park, but First Coast News has reached out for a statement.
"Dinosaurs escaping during a hurricane is *literally* the plot of Jurassic Park," tweeted Philip Rossman-Reich.
Both Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort announced Tuesday that their theme parks and water parks will be closed on Wednesday, Sept. 28, and Thursday, Sept. 29.
The closures include Disney Springs and Universal CityWalk.
Universal previously said it anticipates reopening on Friday as conditions permit. Its hotels are currently at capacity and will remain in operation through the storm, the park added.
