Flash Flood Warning For Eastern Central Palm Beach; School Dismissal Delays Expected

So. Much. Rain.

So much in fact, Park Vista High School in Palm Beach was forced to cancel classes today due to access roads closed thanks to all the flooding.

No other schools have canceled classes, though they have had their parking lots turned into lakes, and their access roads into rivers.

And with a flash flood warning in affect for eastern central Palm Beach, the school district is warning that there could be delays with student dismissals today, according to the Palm Beach Post.

A school district statement was issued today:

"Due to weather conditions, we anticipate some delays for school dismissals and bus transportation throughout the County this afternoon," it read.

There are reports of up to 5 inches of rain throughout Palm Beach County, with even more rain forecasted throughout the day. Fun!

According to the National Weather Service, the chance of rain is at 60 percent. Perhaps the National Weather Service hasn't looked outside the window!

This means that rain will be stop and go all day, which is probably even more annoying that nonstop rain.


This all means traffic issues throughout the day, and especially at rush hour.

So, if you're you are out and about today, please take it slowly, be patient, and remember, your car is not a hovercraft. So avoid any flooded roads you run into.

Yes, it's a pain in the ass to take a detour, but it's better than turning your car into a submarine.

There is a transportation call center if you have any questions about your kids' dismissal or school bus transportation: 561-242-6565.
