A former high school in Volusia County, Florida, has closed for the third time this week, due to Hurricane Florentine.
The Freedom High school, located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida’s Palm Beach County, is a former high-school.
The school was closed to students and staff on Tuesday and was expected to reopen Wednesday.
It was closed for about four weeks due to Tropical Storm Florence, which has a maximum sustained winds of 100 mph.
The Sunshine State was the first to suffer from the storm, with nearly 200 deaths and over $6 billion in damages.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has been in contact with students and parents and has placed the Freedom High students on lockdown, which they will continue until further notice.
Students and staff will be able to return to school Thursday and Friday, the school said in a statement.
The National Hurricane Center reported a wind gust of 75 mph and Hurricane Florence as a Category 4 storm on Wednesday.
