SUNRISE, Fla. – The Sawgrass Mills mall remains closed for a third day because of flooding, but it is scheduled to reopen Saturday morning.

Sunrise police and Sawgrass Mills spokeswoman Jennifer Valdes said that the outlet mall will be closed Friday.

"We are pleased to see water levels receding along our access roads and exterior parking lots, ensuring easy entry once again into the mall," Sawgrass Mills spokeswoman Jennifer Valdes said.

She said the mall will reopen at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The parking lot of the Sawgrass Mills mall remained flooded Friday morning, and orange cones blocked the entrance.

Sawgrass Mills first closed Wednesday because of intense flooding from all the recent rainfall.
