Remembering the 2012 flood: Disaster at the zoo
DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - Duluth’s Lake Superior Zoo was at the epicenter of the flood 10 years ago.
Kingsbury Creek runs through the zoo.
The night of the flood, it went from a couple feet deep to 40 feet deep, filling the zoo like a bathtub.
14 animals drowned, others escaped.
KBJR6′s Dan Wolfe goes inside zoo’s chaotic night, and hears from the woman who took the iconic seal photo.
