But Florida Keys are in a state of “humanitarian crisis”
Walt Disney World’s Theme Parks and Disney Springs have reopened after Hurricane Irma shut them down on Sunday and Monday.
Photos and videos can be seen online showing trees knocked down at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, with winds of up to 95 km/h.
It was only the fifth time in the resort’s 45-year history that severe weather forced the theme park to close. Universal Orlando has also reopened after a two-day closure.
A weakened Irma brought rain and wind to much of the US this week after causing at least 22 deaths in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. The Florida Keys are in a state of “humanitarian crisis”, with residents potentially unable to return for weeks.
Now downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, Irma affected a wide area in the southeast and the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys.
Hurricane Jose, which has lingered in the Atlantic for days without making landfall, continues to stall.
