ASHEBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Zoo will be closed on Monday for clean-up and repair from Hurricane Florence.

A decision about remaining closed or opening on Tuesday will be announced on Monday afternoon, according to the zoo.

The zoo’s priority has been to ensure the safety of our staff and the 1,600 animals under our care, the zoo said in a press release.
