Duluth's Lakewalk hit hard by Mother Nature

While the Twin Cities metro area saw a fairly mild first snow, areas in Duluth took a beating from Mother Nature.

Parts of Duluth's iconic Lakewalk were left mangled by the storm conditions.

The city closed parts of the tourist hot spot after waves from Lake Superior tore up the wooden boardwalk.

Crews are also cleaning up a nearby beach covered in debris, including big chunks of asphalt which were torn loose by winds and water.
