Greater Fort Lauderdale Hospitality, Tourism and Transportation Businesses Resume Normal Operations Post Hurricane Matthew
The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau reports that the destination, popular with millions of annual visitors, was largely unaffected by Hurricane Matthew and is no longer under a hurricane or tropical storm threat. All tourism and travel-related services have reopened and resumed normal operations.
The more northward movement of Matthew greatly improved the forecast for South Florida, including Broward County, resulting in minimal impact to the destination.
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport resumed normal operations at 11:00 am Friday, October 7. Port Everglades reopened for ship arrivals and departures. Destination hotels remained open during the storm and are resuming full-services.
The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau holds the safety of its visitors to the same level of importance and same standards as the destination’s more than 1.7 million population. Broward County is credited with taking quick and comprehensive action to implement safety systems and protocols to assure the well-being of its residents and visitors.
