Gov. Dayton Declares State Of Emergency After Severe Weather


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton declared a state of emergency Thursday in response to severe weather in the past month that has caused flooding and property damage across much of Minnesota.

Dayton’s order applies to 36 counties and the Red Lake Indian Reservation. It cited a persistent weather pattern since June 9 that has generated a series of severe summer storms packing torrential rains, high winds and tornadoes, resulting in flash flooding. The governor’s order directed state agencies to continue to assist affected local governments in responding to and recovering from the effects of the storms.
