ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis is hopeful the city and Stearns County will receive federal assistance to help pay for storm clean-up.

The State Department of Public Safety and representatives from FEMA were in the area yesterday (Thursday) assessing the damage from the storms on Sunday and on July 1st.

Kleis says the cost for clean-up is still being added up.  If FEMA determines there's enough damage, the federal government will help pay for the total cost.
