Well my home town of Duluth is a disaster.

Keep in mind, this is not a flood prone area. Lived there for 26 years and have never seen anything remotely close to this. This is high ground, and I'm sure next to no one has flood insurance.

This is the dam they are afraid is going to collapse. If it does my sister's house will most likely be gone (she is still high and dry right now though)

11 animals escaped from the zoo due to the high water, including this seal found down the road, and a polar bear which was recovered inside the zoo

Odd that the road is gone but the bridge is still there...

This stream is usually knee deep.

Oh and I should have mentioned- the knee deep stream from one of the above photos has vertical banks that are about 7ft tall, so that water is probably at least ten feet deep. Insane.

This is just so sad... It's going to take so much to rebuild all of this. Duluth's economy is already struggling.
