UPDATE: Fort Lauderdale police have reopened the Galleria mall after an anonymous bomb threat was called in, forcing officers to delay the usual 10 a.m. opening.
Police say it was a “false threat.”
The Galleria was also shut down last week when many parts of Fort Lauderdale lost water due to a break in a water pipe.
