DULUTH/SUPERIOR - Heavy floods from last June have dramatically changed the shape of the Saint Louis River at Duluth-Superior. That's according to Saint Louis County officials in Minnesota.

The Coast Guard has placed buoys in some areas to show where the water depths have changed. But county officials say more work needs to be done, or navigating could be a problem for tourists. The Coast Guard says it's doing extra survey work, and it plans to install more buoys.

The Saint Louis is the largest U.S. river that flows into Lake Superior. It's in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
