Overnight storms knocked out power to thousands of people.

Downed power lines occurred at Donald Ross Road just east of Alternate A1A in Palm Beach Gardens.

At 4:30 a.m., eastbound Donald Ross Road is closed at this location as crews repair this line.

Several power poles snapped in this storm, and now the power line is on the ground.

A FPL representative at the scene said the line is de-energized and no threat to the public.

FPL said 1,800 crew members are ready to help with repairs this morning.

All schools are open Monday morning.
