The White House may not have received the memo that flights from Florida's largest airport were suspended ahead of Hurricane Irma.
President Donald Trump's social media director, Dan Scavino, shared a video of a planes in a flooded airport with active ground crew that he and others incorrectly said was Miami International Airport.
"Sharing #HurricaneIrma on social media with President @therealDonaldTrump & @VP Pence hourly. Here is Miami International Airport. STAY SAFE!!" Scavino tweeted around 3:30 p.m. EDT.
The airport quickly fact-checked him, noting that it was not in fact Miami International Airport, which had halted flights due to dangers posed by Irma.
Airlines had moved almost all planes out of the airport and no ground crew were allowed on the airfield, a spokesman said.
Scavino later deleted the video, and later tweeted: "Thank you. It was among 100s of videos/pics I am receiving re: Irma from public. In trying to notify all, I shared - have deleted. Be safe!"
It was not immediately clear which airport was in the video, but no vehicles or planes were left near passenger gates in Miami, according to the airport spokesman.
