DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)---Duluth city officials continue to help thousands of individuals seek financial assistance and sort out the overwhelming losses from the flood.

Construction inspectors and city assessors are out in Northland neighborhoods again today assessing property damages.

City officials were stationed at various locations throughout Duluth helping property owners fill out damage survey forms.

Director of Planning and Construction Services, Keith Hamre says nearly 350 people still need to have their property assessed.

"We kind a have a two-prong approach to that 211 list, making sure people know they can come here, Hamre said. "We've had some people come out when they've seen our assessment team out and said, 'Oh! I've got damage too, come on over to my house.' "So we've been seeing a pretty good response."

Hamre says flood assessments will continue indefinitely.
