Since high winds and hard rain swept across Minnesota two weeks ago, state officials have been asking FEMA for help.
Monday is the day the agency arrives, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
The station catches up with Doug Neville at the Department of Public Safety, who says assessment teams will travel the state and determine the extent of the damage.
The threshold for federal money is $7.26 million. Last Tuesday, the state officially filed papers.
The thought was then that Minnesota would meet the requirement, and since then three more counties have been named disaster areas, making the final tally 26 on that list.
And, indeed, WCCO-TV reports that Minnesota may top that.
