ELKO, Nev. (AP) - An elementary school serving more than 650 students in Elko remains closed following days of flooding in the area.

The Elko Daily Free Press (https://bit.ly/2kGfN6c ) reports that Southside Elementary will be closed Tuesday.

Superintendent Jeff Zander says district officials hope the school can reopen later this week. He says the power could be back on Tuesday.

Zander says no water entered the school, but the playground area and modular units were affected.

Gov. Brian Sandoval on Friday declared a state of emergency in Elko County.



Parts of northern Nevada saw major flooding Monday as snowmelt-fed high water on the Humbolt River moved west from Elko, authorities said.
