Our city, Duluth, MN, is currently under a state of emergency. We've gotten 9 inches of rain since yesterday. Basements are filling with water. Streets are washed away. Neighborhoods have been evacuated. Sink holes have swallowed cars.

The zoo near our home was flooded when the culverts for the creek running through it were blocked with debris - early this morning a polar bear and seal were missing. They found the seal on the street outside of the zoo. The polar bear was found, sedated, and brought to safety. Other animals in the petting zoo area have drowned.

Forecasts say we could get another 5 inches, and we're under flash flood warnings until 10:30pm tonight.

Here's a link to a photo gallery from the Duluth News Tribune: http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/eve...llery/id/2242/

From the Duluth News Tribune:
Quote:
Flash-flood warnings in the Duluth and North Shore areas have been extended until 10:30 p.m., the National Weather Service in Duluth said.

Another inch or more of rain is possible today.

Flooding already has caused massive damage in Duluth and surrounding areas, with roads crumbling, homes and businesses flooded, and zoo animals drowned.

Mayor Don Ness declared a state of emergency in the city of Duluth, citing “significant damage, debris and popped manholes.”

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said he will visit Duluth on Thursday to assess the flood damage.

“This morning my thoughts are with our friends and neighbors in Duluth and the surrounding region, as they respond to major flooding,” Dayton said in a statement. “I have spoken to Duluth Mayor Don Ness and have offered all possible state assistance now and during the recovery.”

On his Facebook page, Ness advised residents who live in a low area near the river to seek higher ground. He noted that crews are out in force and will be aided by people staying off the roads.

“We have a coordinated response with city, county, State Patrol, Coast Guard, Red Cross, and the feds ready to help,” Ness wrote. “I've been very impressed with the coordinated effort to this point. Thank you to the leaders from across the state offering their help and support. There is another band of rain on our way, so it is likely to get worse before it gets better.”

Evacuations are under way in the Fond du Lac neighborhood of Duluth and Thomson Township in Carlton County, and officials at the Lake Superior Zoo are assessing damage and counting their losses after animals drowned and some escaped in the flooding. Duluth fire and police crews helped zoo staff track down animals.

All animals are now accounted for.

At one point, the zoo’s polar bear, Berlin, was able to escape its exhibit. The female bear was darted by the zoo’s veterinarian and is safe in quarantine, said zoo spokeswoman Keely Johnson. None of the zoo’s dangerous animals got outside the perimeter fence, she said.

The Polar Shores exhibit, which housed the seals and Berlin, has been completely flooded out, according to zoo spokeswoman Keely Johnson. At one point the seal swam out of its exhibit and was found on Grand Avenue.

Johnson said many of the zoo’s animals have drowned, including all but one of the zoo’s barnyard animals. She said the zoo’s donkey, goats and sheep have died. She said it’s possible others have drowned, as flooding on the grounds have consumed some of the exhibits, such as the raven and vulture cages.

“Obviously, our entire staff is devastated,” said Peter Pruett, the zoo’s director of animal management.

Johnson said a culvert for Kingsbury Creek was backed up and caused the flooding, but that culvert is now completely washed out.

“The water is starting to recede a little bit,” Johnson said.

“It’s not going to get any better any time soon,” Dean Melde, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said shortly after 10 a.m. “In Duluth, we could easily see another 2 inches, and there’s a line of strong to severe storms forming to our west that could bring more.”

Melde said the recent downpour resulted from high levels of moisture in the atmosphere combined with strong lift from a low pressure system that has slowed the system to a crawl.

Although moisture levels are typically much drier during the winter, Melde said an inch of rain usually equates to between 10 and 12 inches of snow. So the current system could have dropped 60 and 70 inches of snow on Duluth.

Half of Duluth's Fond du Lac neighborhood is being evacuated — though it’s not mandatory — as the St. Louis River rises from above-normal dam discharges upstream. The dams are reported to not be in danger of failure, but Minnesota Power is releasing more water that may flood homes downstream. First United Methodist Church in Duluth — the “coppertop church” — is being used as an evacuation center.

Three Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicles are en route to Duluth to prepare for mass feeding if necessary.

The Carlton County Sheriff's Office is recommending no travel in the county except in emergencies because of flooded roadways. The most-affected areas are across northern parts of the county; Highway 210 through Jay Cooke State Park is closed.

The Sheriff's Office is recommending that some residents of Thomson Township evacuate because of high water. Carlton High School has been opened up as an emergency shelter.

Internet and cell-phone service is out in Two Harbors and elsewhere in Lake County. Minnesota Highway 61 north of Duluth is detoured at Homestead Road into Two Harbors. The detour road is deteriorating, however, with continuing rain.

Lake Country Power said 300 of its members are without power, most of those in the Kettle River area.

The National Weather Service in Duluth reported just before 3 a.m. that “the flooding situation in Duluth continues to deteriorate.” A flash flood warning remains in effect until 4:30 p.m. today for the Twin Ports up the North Shore.

“This appears to be a flood reminiscent of the flood of 1972,” which devastated parts of the Duluth Hillside, the Weather Service reported. And with more storms lined up to the west, the situation may get worse yet this morning.

My family is fortunate.... Our 100 year home didn't get much more water in our unfinished basement than we usually do. However the city is a mess... Streets collapsed and washed away. The rain has stopped for the time being and the sun is now out, but the forecast has 80% chance of rain for this evening. Under flood warnings until Friday

From the Duluth News Tribune:
Wish there was a way you could send that rain our way to help put out our fires and relieve the drought. We had another fire breakout yesterday. This one about 10 miles or so from my house. 6th. fire in our state this year. Out of the 6 fires, 3 are still burning. One fire has burned close to 300K acres. One other has burned over 200 homes and structures. Amazing how one side of the country is totally engulfed in water, while the other is dry as a bone. I agree with Pooh and the others, stay safe over there.

Supposed to be a little cooler today. Our high yesterday was 95. Other parts of our state were 100+. Supposed to be in the high 80's here today.

9:15 am and it's currently 76.

GOOD FRIDAY MORNING Weather DISer's!!!

First of all to answer your questions on CARSLAND ………..

IT IS AMAZING. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLY AMAZING. EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT CARSLAND IS FABULOUS. If you have NOT seen the movie, please to those coming this summer, rent it and watch it before stepping one foot in CARSLAND … because once you see the movie and walk into CARSLAND you absolutely feel like you are IN the movie. DISNEY HAS DONE AMAZING WITH THIS PARK.

I am a little leery of fast rides so Brett went on RSR using the 'single rider line' … HE LITERALLY COULD NOT TALK!!! He said it is BY FAR THE BESTEST THEME PARK RIDE EVER. And we have been to thousands of theme parks!!!!!!!!!! AND he said I could do it so I plan to!!!!!!!!



We are off to the east coast today … WASHINGTON DC for 10 days!!! Appears the east is dealing with some INTENSE heat. Yikes. So CALI has been 5 degrees cooler than USUAL. And of course we have no humidity and DC does … DH has conferences and meetings so I am tagging along. We plan to do allot of sightseeing despite the heat!


10:30am in SoCALI bright sun .. 72 degrees.

STAY COOL EVERYONE DEALING WITH THE HEAT!!!
