    Florida's major theme parks on Friday announced closure plans as Hurricane Irma approached the state.

    Officials at Walt Disney World in Orlando announced its parks will close on Saturday and remain closed through Monday.

    Universal Orlando announced on its website that it will close at 7 p.m. Saturday and remain closed through Monday. Officials said they anticipate reopening on Tuesday.

    SeaWorld in Orlando and Busch Gardens, which is in Tampa, also announced plans to shut down at 5 p.m. Saturday and remain closed through Monday.

    Last October, the theme parks closed down for Hurricane Matthew, which skirted Florida's southeast coast.
