Over $100 Million In Damage Estimated From Northland Flooding

I have a sneaking suspicion that the most recent $100 million damage estimate will be a lot lower than the final tally.  Just today Moose Lake forced evacuations and other areas like Barnum are still uncovering new damage.  The bottom line is despite the storms being over, there is still damage being done.
