Itasca County Storm Damage,

On July 2, 2012, Itasca County experienced widespread damage due to a violent storm. There was an extreme amount of property damage and widespread power outages which included several of the municipalities along the highway 2 corridor. We are unable to identify the time frame for power restoration so we ask that people conserve water and other resources in preparation for a long term outage. Please stay clear of downed lines and suspended trees. Any public information should be directed to our, none emergency line 218-326-3477. We will follow-up with further information as it becomes available. Personal property is the responsibility of the individual owner, and any property damage should be documented for their local insurance agents.
