Governor Dayton Requests Federal Disaster Declaration For 28 Counties, 3 Tribal Nations


Governor Mark Dayton is asking President Donald Trump to declare 28 counties and three tribal nations a federal disaster area, after a succession of storms and flooding hit Minnesota from mid June into July.

If the White House grants Dayton’s request, it would make federal dollars available to help local governments repair damaged infrastructure.

Governor Dayton is requesting federal assistance to help cover reimbursement for damage expenses in the counties of Aitkin, Beltrami, Blue Earth, Brown, Carlton, Cass, Clearwater, Cottonwood, Faribault, Itasca, Jackson, Kanabec, Koochiching, Lake, Lyon, Martin, Murray, Nicollet, Nobles, Pine, Pipestone, Polk, Redwood, Renville, Rock, St. Louis, Sibley, and Watonwan, and the tribal governments of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, Red Lake Nation, and White Earth Nation.
