Minnesota Has At Least $32 Million In Flood Damages

Posted: Updated:
Initial estimates from recent flooding damages across Minnesota are at $32 million, with more assessments to come that will push the total up.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and his emergency managers provided the estimate Tuesday. They said it makes them confident that the state would be eligible for federal assistance to offset costs of response and recovery. Flooding damage was seen in nearly half of Minnesota's counties.

The state has a $3 million relief fund to help match federal disaster aid. Dayton says it's possible a special legislative session will be needed if the state account is tapped out.
