Universal Orlando Damage from Hurricane Ian; Resort Update

The destruction from Hurricane Ian has been genuinely devastating all over Southwest Florida to the east coast. The hurricane’s path went via Central Florida creating tons of flooding and wind destruction. Like a lot of communities, Universal Orlando Resort was impacted by the hurricane winds and rain. All those using out the hurricane at the resort have been submitting updates and some of the photographs are surprising.

On the Universal Orlando Annual Passholder Fb team, passholder Katerina Townsend shared shots from Loews Portofino Bay Resort. The piazza is flooded and the walkways to Common CityWalk are underwater. You can see how significant the drinking water level is by seeking at the photo of the drinking water taxi nearly touching the bridge.
