PENSACOLA, Fla. — Officials in Pensacola are asking all non-emergency vehicles to stay off the roads.

The Escambia County Emergency Management Office will continue to monitor weather conditions Wednesday morning.

A number of services remained closed in the area, including the Escambia County Area Transit, which will resume operations on Thursday.

Officials say the Pensacola International Airport parking garage closed Tuesday night due to ice on the ramps. Crews were working through the night to de-ice the ramps and asked airport visitors to park in surrounding areas. The airport is expecting major delays on Wednesday morning and officials advise passengers to check with airlines for the status of flights.

Gulf Power was experiencing intermittent power outages Tuesday evening as ice formed on power lines.

Officials plan another update at 8 a.m. CST.
