Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, Jacksonville International, Miami International, Orlando International, Palm Beach International, Southwest Florida International and Tampa International are all closed today. Tallahassee International Airport will resume operations later today. Pensacola International Airport posted this:
We've been informed that a few national news and media outlets have reported that ALL Florida airports are currently closed due to Hurricane Irma. This is FALSE. While many southern and eastern Florida airports are closed, Pensacola International Airport is currently open and will remain open as long as Hurricane Irma does not severely impact our area. Passengers with scheduled travel to impacted areas are strongly encouraged to monitor the status of their flight by frequently visiting their airline's website.
