Due to heavy rainfall and flash floods, many roadways in and around the Duluth area are experiencing extremely dangerous conditions such as roadways underwater, sinkholes, mudslides, man hole covers open etc. Portions of I-35 in Duluth are impassable. Many homes are reporting flooded basements.

The Duluth Police Department is asking citizens to remain at home and any travel needs to be for emergency ONLY. Also, any calls to 911 should be for emergency purposes ONLY.
