Damage assessment and cleanup continues in flood-ravaged northeastern Minnesota.
Duluth officials say it's still not safe for hundreds of evacuated residents to return to their homes in the low-lying Fond du Lac area, WDAY reports.
Those residents are desperately seeking answers, the Duluth News Tribune reports.
The News Tribune also has the story of residents along a quarter-mile stretch of West Skyline Parkway that are cut off from the rest of the city of Duluth, trapped by gaping sections of washed-out road. They've put their ingenuity to good use.
The damage estimates are climbing and more rain is expected, the Pioneer Press says. Light rain was falling Saturday.
Minnesota lawmakers in Congress visited Duluth Friday to survey the mess for themselves and pledge federal support, the Star Tribune reports.
Many homeowners in the flood-ravaged areas of northern Minnesota will be left high and dry when it comes to financial protection, KARE 11 reports. Statistically, fewer than 1 percent of Minnesotans have flood insurance.
Gov. Mark Dayton plans to visit Moose Lake and Carlton next week as they continue cleanup and assess damage, the Associated Press says. "We're all going to pitch in together," the governor said.
Residents in Willow River were urged to boil water, the Pine Journal reports.
Money has been donated from people across the country to help the flood-damaged Lake Superior Zoo. A few Duluth children decided to open a lemonade stand to raise money for the animals, WDIO says. "I hope that they get new farm animals in the petting zoo because they really like petting animals," said Ella Ness, a 7-year-old at the lemonade stand. She's also Duluth Mayor Don Ness's daughter.
Eyewitnesses are telling the story of what exactly happened at the zoo that night, MPR reports.
