    Major Flooding in Duluth, Minnesota

    The picture of the seal makes me want to cry. Plus there are reports that the animals in the barnyard exhibit at the zoo all drowned.

    The seal and the polar bear made it back safely. The zoo personnel are devastated over losing all but one of the barnyard animals and then three of the larger birds. Two-thirds of the zoo is underwater and will still have too much water for days.

    All of the creeks and rivers around town are incredibly swollen and some neighborhoods are under voluntary evacuation orders. Who knows how long it's going to take to inventory the streets' damages. But there are no reports of human injuries or deaths from the flooding except for abrasions on a kid playing in the water who was swept into a culvert and was washed up a mile away in the next city over.

    Poor barnyard animals

    I hope the floods abate soon, and without any further damage.

    My daughter just left there. I'm happy she didn't get caught in it. The devastation in some parts is terrible. I fell so sorry for the dead animals, I'm thankful there were no human deaths.
