Will county get disaster aid?

Email

ST. PAUL -- Governor Mark Dayton wants the federal government to help Minnesota pay for nearly $18 million in public facility damages from last month's storms.

He sent President Barack Obama a letter Wednesday seeking a major federal disaster declaration for 18 counties, including Douglas County, that experienced flooding and storm damage June 20-26. The request comes after federal and state officials toured the storm-damaged area and totaled the nearly $18 million in damage.
