DULUTH, Minn. (KMSP) -

More than three weeks after a devastating flood, the Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth will re-open to the public on Friday, July 13.

Crews spent the day Thursday putting the finishing touches on things. Last month's flood killed 14 animals, most of which were part of a barnyard exhibit.

A polar bear and two seals escaped from their enclosures because of the high water. Those animals are now being cared for at the Como Zoo in St. Paul. It's not clear if they'll be able to return to Duluth because their exhibit was severely damaged.
