Mill Valley - Dozens of schools in flood-prone areas throughout Marin County are closed Thursday in advance of another storm expected to wallop the area, officials said.
In all, 40 public schools and 13 private ones were announced as closed just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Marin County Office of Education. More closures were possible.
Residents of the North Bay county spent Wednesday mopping up after the last storm, examining sandbags and pushing back receding water.
Up to three inches of rain could fall on Marin County Thursday, with the storm expecting to move into the area during the morning commute and stick around all day long, according to the National Weather Service.
