The storm that hit early yesterday morning knocked out power for a third of the City of Duluth. Crews are working around the clock clearing trees and restoring power, but it may still be a couple of days before some areas get electricity back. I think we are all used to a loss of power for a brief period of time, but losing power for this long really shows how much we take reliable power for granted.
How is it that the worst storms are usually the ones that catch you completely off guard? That was the case in the early hours this morning. I woke up a little after 3 am, not realizing exactly what had woke me. A few minutes later I heard a slight rumble. Just a garden variety thunderstorm, I figured.
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 storm that ripped through the Northland early Thursday morning not only destroyed trees, knocked out power and caused damage, but now there are storm-related fatalities being reported in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
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.
It's been a rough stretch of weather leading to flooding all over the Northland, including some state campsites and trails. Dangerous river conditions can also be found throughout the area, as well as closures of several off-highway vehicle (OHV) trails and state forest roads.
My husband and I have always had storm drain issues, but even more so now that the new Duluth Middle School has been built. We get a rush of water from that facility because we live down hill of it. We investigated and found that there is a good reason why. If you have similar problems with storm drain run-off, you are encouraged to attend a meeting to have your voice heard.
With thousands of runners and spectators taking part in the 2016 Grandma's Marathon festivities, we're keeping an eye on the weather for you. Here's the latest of what you can expect for the big weekend:
As we get ready for the Keith Urban show coming to Amsoil Arena, I thought I'd share 5 of my favorite Urban songs. Most of these weren't radio hits, and you most likely won't hear a majority in concert, but they are songs definitely worth a listen.
