Tropical Storm Force Winds Expected To Strike Palm Beach County As Early As Sunday Afternoon. Palm Tran Ceases Operations At 4 p.m. Until Storm Passes.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County is closing all government buildings and services starting at 6 p.m. Sunday. They will remain closed through Monday, unless another advisory is issued.
The closure includes libraries, schools and other facilities. Emergency services, of course, will continue to operate. County officials are concerned about rain, wind and flooding due the significant amount of rain the region has received over the past several weeks.
The emergency operations center is operating at a “level 2” for the storm. There are no evacuations ordered, no shelters will open. Shelter staff, however, is on standby.
Palm Tran is ceasing operations until the storm passes.
