ST. PAUL (AP) -- Flooding and heavy rain in southeastern Minnesota earlier this month caused more than $8 million in damage, according to state estimates released Monday.
The eight affected counties are Faribault, Fillmore, Freeborn, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Dodge and Winona, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety's division of emergency management.
The division has asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency to review the damage assessment for possible federal assistance. The FEMA team was expected to arrive Wednesday and finish its report by Friday, according to division director Kevin Leuer.
