The declaration paves the way for the City of Duluth to seek state and federal disaster relief dollars for cleanup. 

Mayor Emily Larson announced Monday that it will cost another $600,000 on top of the millions of dollars of damage caused by the October storm. 

Once the damage assessment is complete, they can apply for state reimbursement from the Minnesota Department of Revenue for disaster credits that may also be available to property owners.
