Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Roads into SeaWorld and Discovery Cove in Orlando, Florida were shut down Wednesday morning as officials detonated a suspicious package.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office, Orange County Fire Rescue and their hazmat team responded to the scene and closed Central Florida Parkway and Sea Harbor drive near the parks while they investigated.

The bomb squad discovered electronics in the suitcase and detonated it on the scene.

Further details about the nature of the electronics and the origination of the suitcase have not yet been released. Central Florida Parkway has since reopened.
