Sunday's storm downed trees at the Palm Beach Zoo, volunteers clear paths

Zoo is open for business

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The heavy winds and rains that hit West Palm Beach Sunday took a toll on the Palm Beach Zoo, zoo officials said.

Storm cleanup got underway Monday morning.
Zoo officials say that a dozen volunteers and staff members removed fallen branches and palms.

Two of the zoo’s pathways were closed while crews began cutting back branches from a large tree that fell across a bridge and into the bear habitat.

Other pathways have been cleared and the zoo says it is open for business.

The storm caused $16,000 damage, according to the zoo.

No animals were injured in yesterday’s storm.

The zoo says that all pathways should be cleared by noon.
