DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — A building at Lake Superior College is flooded and unusable after an autumn storm dumped more than 2 inches of rain on the Duluth area.

College spokesman Gary Kruchowski tells the Duluth News Tribune flooding on the lower part of Building E forced Lake Superior College to relocate some of Wednesday's classes.

The National Weather Service reports 2.3 inches of rain had fallen on Duluth by Tuesday evening. Meteorologist Dean Melde (MEHL'-dee) says the rain has now turned over to snow.

A cooperative spotter reports nearly 3.5 inches of rain had fallen seven miles northwest of Two Harbors as of 7 p.m. Tuesday. More than 3.6 inches of rain was reported in Askov as of late Tuesday afternoon.
