Duluth Mayor Don Ness has a message for our community on the one year anniversary of the June flood that devastated many parts of Duluth, Superior, and outlying towns. His message is not an update on road construction or where projects to rebuild stand, but focuses on where we are now as a whole and how it has affected us all.
Among many homes and businesses ravaged by last June's flood, the Lake Superior Zoo was hard hit. Flood waters damaged zoo buildings, caused the death of 14 animals, and led to the escape of other animals.
It's been one year since a large storm system dropped several inches of rain on the region; leaving homes, businesses, roadways, and entire communities damaged around the Duluth/Superior region. A year later, we take a look back at some of the incredible photos and videos that left us awestruck.
