Duluth Assesses Damage from Powerful Storm

October 11, 2018 12:44 PM

City crews are assessing damage along the Lake Superior shoreline in Duluth after powerful winds produced destructive waves.

Waves crashed into the shoreline Wednesday, tossing boulders and debris onto the lake walk and flooding nearby streets. The damage comes about a year after an October storm caused an estimated $10 million in damage along the lakefront.
The storm flooded the basements of some businesses near Canal Park and damaged Brighton Beach.

In Wisconsin, the National Weather Service issued a flood advisory for northern Ashland County until 11:30 p.m. Thursday.
