DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- The Red Cross has opened two shelters for northeastern Minnesota residents displaced by flooding.
One is at the First United Methodist Church in Duluth, also known as the Copper Top Church for its distinctive pyramid-shaped roof. It's at 230 E. Skyline Parkway overlooking the city. The Red Cross is also staffing a shelter at Carlton High School in Carlton.
Duluth authorities asked residents of the low-lying Fond du Lac neighborhood along the St. Louis River in Duluth to evacuate Wednesday morning. State officials say some residents in Thomson Township west of Duluth in Carlton County were also encouraged to leave.
