Undertropical Storm Nicole has declared an emergency at Universal Studios and Disney World in Orlando.
Less than a month after Hurricane Ian forced the closure of Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort, the Florida resorts have once more been placed under a state of
emergency due to the possibility of wind and rain from what is currently Subtropical Storm Nicole.The state's Atlantic Coast from Hallandale Beach, to the north of Miami,
to just above Daytona Beach, and inland to Lake Okeechobee are all under hurricane watches, according to the National Hurricane Center.In 34 of the 67 counties in the state,
including Lake, Orange, Oscoloa, and Seminole, which are near or include portions of the Disney and Universal resorts, Governor Ron DeSantis announced a state of emergency
this afternoon.As a result, Orlando is under a Tropical Storm Watch from the National Weather Service in neighbouring Melbourne.
Deadline has gotten in touch with Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World.
Nicole is expected to move across the area on Thursday, but neither theme park has announced anything on its websites about possible repercussions,
and both are still accepting reservations for that day. Universal will begin its annual holiday party on Saturday.
