ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton says he's offering Duluth all possible state assistance as the city copes with severe flooding.

Dayton issued a statement Wednesday saying he spoke with Duluth Mayor Don Ness about help the state can provide now and during the recovery. He says he will travel to Duluth on Thursday morning to discuss further how the state can help.

Dayton also asks people who live in or were planning to travel in the Duluth area to follow the requests of local authorities to stay off of affected roads and highways so emergency crews can do their work.
