The St. Louis County Board meets Tuesday to consider requesting a state disaster declaration, which would require approval from Gov. Mark Dayton.

Damaged areas include the popular Lakewalk from Canal Park on the harbor up the shore to Leif Erickson Park, and the sidewalk behind the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. Some of those areas were still being repaired after earlier storms.
