Multiple colleges will be closed through the weekend because of Imelda, which brought heavy rainfall and flooding to southeast Texas.

The University of Houston-Victoria at Katy will remain closed until Monday to allow the community to recover from floods and because of uncertainty about weather and road conditions, according to a news release from the college.

All Wharton County Junior College campuses have also closed through the weekend, according to Cheryl Machicek, a marketing and communications specialist at the school.

Both schools are scheduled to resume normal hours on Monday.
