City officials, authorities, and clean up crews are out and about around South Florida, assessing damages from the storm and deeming next steps for community-wide safety.
Curfews across the region remained in effect while others were lifting Monday morning, and most schools remained closed. Here's what you need to know:
Broward County remained under a curfew until 10 a.m. Monday.
The county suffered significant impacts, including street flooding, downed trees, power lines and debris in the streets, and infrastructure damage to public and private property.
Officials said downed trees appeared to be the worst issue, with traffic lights not working at most intersections.
Broward Mayor Barbara Sharief urged residents to stay off roads even after the curfew was lifted.
Evacuation shelters throughout Broward will be closed as quickly as possible so that the schools can return to normal schedules.
Sharief said there will be designated shelters that will remain open for residents who can't return home due to damage. Those designated, transitional shelters are currently being decided on and evaluated.
