Evacuees escaped Irma, but uncertain when they can go home

  Evacuees escaped Irma, but uncertain when they can go home Floridians who evacuated ahead of Hurricane Irma could have a tough time returning home when the wrath of the storm ends, including those who fled as far away as Atlanta. The ferocity and size of the hurricane left uncertain when people will be able to drive or fly back. Highways became parking lots as nearly 7 million people were warned to evacuate, including 6.4 million in Florida. Emergency management officials told residents to store three days of food and water because it might take that long.

Here ’ s What a Sad, Empty Disney World Looked Like During Hurricane Irma . As the saying goes, however, there's always sunshine after the rain. Take this beautiful rainbow in the storm's aftermath as an example

Guests at Disney World‘s Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios have been sharing photos of the Florida resorts on social media showing damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

The Disney parks, which were closed Sunday and Monday, opened at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The water parks will remain closed until later this week, according to a statement.

It was just the sixth shutdown in Disney World’s 45-year history, but the second one in less than a year. Hurricane Matthew also forced Disney to close the gates in October 2016.

Disney’s nearby theme park rival, Universal Studios, also closed the doors during Hurricane Irma. “Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades,” reads a statement from Universal Orlando. “We are hard at work inside our parks and we can confirm an on-time opening for Tuesday, Sept 12 at 9am for Universal Studios, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay.”

Most of Disney World has reopened after Hurricane Irma , but what can visitors expect to see? Damages look minimal for the most part, but the park isn’t exactly looking like “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”

Here ’ s What Irma Looks Like From Inside a Hurricane Shelter. The storm prompted Disney World to close early on Saturday and remain closed Sunday and Monday, marking only the fifth time that Disney World has shut down its theme parks since opening in 1971.
