Dayton declares Duluth flood state of emergency


ST. PAUL, Minn. - 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.

In Carlton, several residents have been evacuated. Some residents in Thomson Township in Carlton County were urged to leave after the Thompson Reservoir overflowed. Residents of Duluth's Fond du Lac neighborhood had also urged to evacuate.
