Jay Cooke, Duluth (WDAY TV) -- Our first look tonight, at damage to a state park in Duluth, from the storms a couple of weeks ago. The DNR says it'll close Jay Cooke Park indefinitely, because of all the damage.

The swing bridge over the St. Louis River is severely damaged. And damage to Highway 210 around the park is said to be $30 to $40 million. They're impassable.

The DNR is cancelling reservations through October 31st, and refunds are being offered.

The closure will cost about $175-thousand dollars in camping and lodging revenue.
