Dayton Declares State Of Emergency Over Flooding

 

National Weather Service

ST. PAUL (AP) – Gov. Mark Dayton has declared a state of emergency in 35 counties because of the recent storms and flooding.

He’s also directed the Minnesota National Guard to send 100 soldiers to Koochiching County to help in the fight against flooding on the Rainy River and Rainy Lake in the International Falls area.

The state-of-emergency declaration makes a wide range of state resources available to affected communities and gets state agencies more involved in the response.

The Department of Public Safety has now fully activated its State Emergency Operations Center, which it partially activated earlier this week. Emergency management director Kris Eide says they’re ramping up efforts to help communities across the state that are dealing with storm damage and high water.
