Sea World San Diego

Sea World San Diego closes today

Popular amusement park and tourist attraction Sea World San Diego, has closed today due to torrential rain, and hurricane force winds.

SeaWorld’s spokesperson, Dave Koontz, said its the first time the park has closed due to rain since 1998.

Sea World officials said attendance had dropped below normal levels for this time of year in the last few days. They said they expect to reopen at 10 a.m. Friday.

The airport in San Diego, Lindbergh field, has suspended all incoming and outgoing flights by its major carrier Southwest Airlines, with hopes of re-starting those flights later in the afternoon.

Legoland California in Carlsbad has also closed today to the public, but the Sea Life Aquarium at Legoland is open,as well as the San Diego Zoo and the Wild Animal park.

The National Weather Service forecast severe weather throughout the San Diego area, including heavy rain, high winds and the possibility of flash flooding. (Source- http://www.10news.com/news/22304297/detail.html ).

Disneyland had closed early on Monday only, but Knott’s Berry Farm has closed for the third time this week, due to inclement weather.Disneyland is operating on its normal schedule.

On Tuesday, Knott’s cleared out early because of tornado warnings and bad weather.

There is significant flooding,fallen trees, and incredible wind damage, that we are not ready for here in sunny Southern California.

We know the rest of the nation is laughing at our reaction to a “little rain storm”…but we are not used to it here.

I can not wait to go to the beach when the weather finally clears up!
