Email

Gov. Mark Dayton, representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), county, and city officials are assessing the damage due to last week’s history breaking rainfall in central and northeastern Minnesota. What they are finding is not good news for federal, state and local budgets.

Crow Wing County estimates $600,000 in storm-related damage. Most of the damage was to roads in the county, according to interim Crow Wing County Highway Engineer Rob Hall.
