In a press conference at the Public Safety Building in Duluth, representatives from the City of Duluth, St. Louis County, and Minnesota Power updated the public on a number of things, including progress in restoring power.
The Northland had been warned of excessive heat and many people were preparing by getting their fans and air conditioners in place. However, no one was expecting the extent of damage from the early morning storm that surprised us with downed trees and power lines. Over 3,000+ people were left without power and many don't know when it will be restored. Amsoil Arena and the Duluth Area YMCA has stepped up to help the community, elevate stress and keep us safe.
The storm that ripped through the Northland last night brought down hundreds of trees and shattered power lines - leaving many cleaning up in it's aftermath. It apparently also took lives in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
If you haven't visited the Great Lakes Aquarium lately it should be on your "to do" list to see the new Unsalted Seas Exhibit. My favorite (and always will be) is the Otters, those little playful honeys! But, my friend Alan White told me the tale that he gets to kiss the sturgeon and THAT I HAD to see.
In the aftermath of powerful severe storms causing thousands to be left without power or running water Thursday, the Duluth Area Family YMCA is offering the opportunity for the community to be safe and taken care of.
Hats off to our law enforcement for keeping us safe and upholding the law in our area. While drug and violent crimes are a large issue, they are making great inroads in keeping this stuff off the street.
Considering the warm temperatures, it should be a perfect evening for some ice cream! Tonight (July 20) is the Ice Cream Social at Fairlawn Museum - an annual event that promises family-fun for everyone.
