DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Hotel managers in Duluth say they're still seeing cancellations, even though most of the community is in decent condition following last week's floods and unsafe areas are blocked off.
Bill DeSanto is chief operating officer of ZMC Hotels, He says two ZMC-owned hotels had a total of 200 cancellations last weekend, cutting their bookings from 100 percent occupancy to 50 percent.
And general manager Lorri Drake of the Hampton Inn in Canal Park says cancellations are running between 25 percent and 30 percent.
Duluth Mayor Don Ness says the misconceptions are understandable. He says the images of the flood were profound and dramatic.
But he says 99% of the community is in decent condition.
The city is considering an emergency tourism ad campaign.
