Governor Declares State of Emergency in Duluth
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton has declared a state of emergency and authorized the National Guard to help Duluth cope with its flood damage.
The governor issued the executive order Wednesday afternoon, a few hours after promising Duluth Mayor Don Ness that the state would provide all possible assistance.
Dayton plans to travel to Duluth on Thursday morning to discuss further how the state can help.
Dayton also asks people who live in or were planning to travel in the Duluth area to follow the requests of local authorities to stay off of affected roads and highways so emergency crews can do their work.
The Red Cross has opened two shelters for northeastern Minnesota residents displaced by flooding. State emergency managers say there were 30 evacuees at the Duluth church and 40 at Carlton High School.
Duluth authorities asked residents of the low-lying Fond du Lac neighborhood along the St. Louis River in Duluth to evacuate Wednesday morning. Some residents in Thomson Township west of Duluth in Carlton County were also encouraged to leave. According to the National Weather Service, county authorities ordered the evacuation after a reservoir overflowed.
