Duluth, MN (WDAY TV) -- 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.

Authorities spent the day assessing the damage.

The U.S. Coast Guard has been using a helicopter and airboat to rescue people trapped by raging floodwater..

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton is touring the area as leaders look toward providing flood relief. He says it's too early to say whether a special legislative session is needed to approve disaster relief.

FEMA is expected to start tallying the damage next week.
