  For many in Duluth, the July 21st storm significantly altered the landscape of their homes and neighborhoods.  Conversations have been primarily about trees and residential structures. Yet the damage in the Twin Ports also affected some downtown businesses, notably those in the historic Board of Trade Building on West 1st Street in Downtown Duluth.

You think you're on good hands ... until mayhem strikes in the form of a rainstorm ... or a flash flood ... or even a mudslide.  Then you may be in for another unpleasant surprise: what your homeowner's insurance does - and doesn't cover.  But if you have questions, the Minnesota Commerce Department has answers.

Storm recovery continues across the area, with power being restored to more areas, including UMD. KUMD is now back on the air, and the Rolling Thunder Reunion show will go on at the Weber Music Hall tonight as planned.

Mayor Larson will be holding a press conference with representatives from Minnesota Power and St. Louis County at 10 this morning for an update on the storm recovery efforts.

Duluth continues to recover from Thursday night's destructive storms, widespread power outages, and high temperatures. 

UMD sent out an alert around 6 this morning that, due to the continued power outage, campus will again be closed for today. KUMD will remain off the air until power is restored to campus.

A storm moving through Duluth around 3:30am took out power and phone lines and uprooted trees, closing roads and prompting travel advisories this morning. 

The growl of chain saws started early as city crews and residents began assessing the damage. 

UMD sent out an announcement just after 6:00am, saying campus would be closed until 10:00am "Due to storm damage, power outages, and a no travel advisory."
