Duluth area update: Evacuations under way in Moose Lake, Willow River


Evacuations are under way in Moose Lake and Willow River today as rivers and lakes continue to rise, swollen by runoff from this week's record-setting rains.

City administrator Mark Vahling said Thursday that at least 30 percent of the city has been affected by the floods. He said floodwaters that flowed from the north and west after heavy rains Tuesday and Wednesday breached homes and businesses, and forced the closing of the highway 73 bridge over an inlet into Moose Lake.
