Duluth Mayor Don Ness earlier today declared a state of emergency, requesting assistance from state and federal authorities in clean up and rescue efforts as a result of the extreme rainfall totals in the past 24 hours. Governor Mark Dayton issued a response as well, offering the following thoughts on the deviating rainfall:

This morning my thoughts are with our friends and neighbors in Duluth and the surrounding region, as they respond to major flooding. I have spoken to Duluth Mayor Don Ness and have offered all possible state assistance now and during the recovery. I will travel to Duluth tomorrow morning to discuss further how the state can help.

There is another inch of rain possible through the day today, further complicating the efforts to clean up and dry out.
