Re: Duluth question

That Port Authority slip was recently rebuilt as an international laydown area so it might be a new warehouse. The harbor camera is zoomed too close right now so I can't discern but a lot of development has happened in the last couple of years. Like garbear, I haven't been there during the nightmare...
