Major disaster declared for Minnesota

President Obama has issued a major disaster declaration for the areas of Minnesota affected by severe storms and flooding during the period of September 21st-24th 2016.

The President's action makes federal funding available to state and eligible tribal and local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for assistance for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by severe storms and flooding in Blue Earth, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Le Sueur, Rice, Steele, and Waseca counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

David G. Samaniego has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area. Samaniego said additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of damage assessments.
