Governor Dayton released the following this morning on the flooding in Duluth:

This morning my thoughts are with our friends and neighbors in Duluth and the surrounding region, as they respond to major flooding. I have spoken to Duluth Mayor Don Ness and have offered all possible state assistance now and during the recovery. I will travel to Duluth tomorrow morning to discuss further how the state can help.

Emergency crews are working hard to ensure public safety, while they begin the cleanup process. If you live or were planning to travel in the Duluth area, please follow their requests to stay off of affected roads and highways. Parts of Interstate 35 and Highway 23 are presently closed, as well as various local roads and streets. Please stay safe and allow the emergency crews to do their work.

  1. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Duluth in this time of hardship.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are lifted up for the entire Twin Cities region.
    Duluth is a favorite of the best places for boat watching on the Lakes. The aerial shot (you had posted earlier today) showing the Harbor and the canal was a definite wow!
