The White House has declared a major disaster in Minnesota, following the damage and flooding caused by severe storms earlier this summer.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday approved 27 counties and 3 tribal lands as eligible for federal disaster assistance.
He did so at the request of Governor Mark Dayton, who wrote to the president last month after observing the wreckage caused by storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding in southeast and northern Minnesota between June 15 and July 11.
The federal government will reimburse the state for 75 percent of the costs of repairing public infrastructure, including roads damaged in the storms.
Gov. Dayton has said the state will pay for the remaining 25 percent from its emergency contingency fund.
The governor saw first hand the damage wrought by the early summer storms, touring some of the worst-hit areas in July after rivers broke their banks and flooded roads, fields and property, causing millions of dollars of damage.
These images show some of the damage in Murray County in July.
Here are the counties and tribal lands that will be eligible for the funding:
Aitkin, Beltrami, Blue Earth, Brown, Carlton, Cass, Clearwater, Cottonwood, Faribault, Itasca, Jackson, Koochiching, Lake, Lyon, Martin, Murray, Nicollet, Nobles, Pine, Pipestone, Polk, Redwood, Renville, Rock, St. Louis, Sibley, and Watonwan Counties.
Also, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, Red Lake Nation, and White Earth Nation.
