Public schools in Broward County will resume normal operations on Monday after several days of heavy rains that caused record flooding and severe storms.

All school campuses and administrative offices will be open and operating during their regular hours, county officials said.

Public schools in the county were closed Thursday and Friday due to flooding, shutting down all school campuses and district offices. In addition, all extracurricular activities, excursions and events have been cancelled.

School officials said at least 20 schools were damaged by the floods and estimated there were at least $2 million in losses from rain damage, although that figure is expected to rise. .

The National Weather Service showed that 25.91 inches of rain fell at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in a single day, breaking the old record of 14.59 inches set in 1979.
