Boca Raton City Hall was flooded after heavy rainfall Thursday evening.

Restoration crews were brought in overnight to clean up the damage sustained to flooring and carpets.

Boca Raton Fire Rescue says the building experienced flooding on the first and second floors. Parts of Boca City Hall (One Stop Permitting and Customer Service) will remained closed Friday.

However, the offices which sustained moderate damage, Parking Services, reopened.

"It could have been a lot worse," Spokeswoman Chrissy Biagiotti said. "There was no damage to the servers, no electrical damage, just standing water about two inches on the floors."
