The Mississippi Aquarium in Gulfport announced on Monday that the planned soft reopening at the facility has been cancelled due to Tropical Storm Marco and Tropical Storm Laura.
The planned reopening events were slated to take place between August 24 and August 27.
The aquarium has made a statement about the cancellations with promises to monitor the situation with both storms.
“As we make preparations for the incoming weather, we encourage you to follow the local media outlets for all weather updates as the situation continues to change and follow the recommendations of the local authorities.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We could not do this without you and look forward to welcoming you to Mississippi Aquarium on August 29.”
