Many schools in the Tampa Bay area are just like residences -- no power. 
 
That means none of the schools will be open Tuesday. Some will be closed even longer.

Schools throughout the region may be damaged.  Some may have employees with homes that were damaged. 
 
Hillsborough schools are closed through at least Tuesday. The district will make a decision wether to open on Wednesday or remain closed longer. 
 
More than 40 Hillsborough schools were used as shelters and the shelters may need to remain open for displaced families. 
 
Here's what other school districts are doing.

  • Polk County schools are closed until Monday
  • Pasco County schools are closed until Monday
  • Hernando County schools are closed until Monday
  • Pinellas County Schools are closed until Monday
  • Manatee County schools are closed until Monday
  • Sarasota County Schools are closed until Monday
