ORLANDO, Fla. — With Tropical Storm Elsa bearing down on Florida, emergency managers at Orlando International Airport are keeping a close watch on its track and progress.
Based on current forecasts, Elsa is not expected to have a significant impact on airport operations and the Emergency Operations Center will maintain its current level of activation.
Airport staff continue to monitor operational areas of the airport, making sure ramps and curbside equipment are safe and secure as winds increase during the day.
Elsa’s close proximity to Central Florida has caused a number of airlines to cancel some flights for the day.
As of noon on Tuesday, a total of 25 flights have been canceled at Orlando International Airport (MCO) - 14 arrivals and 11 departures - affecting approximately 3000 passengers.
Airport officials are advising travelers to contact their airlines for updates on individual flights.
