Dayton Tours Flood-Damaged NE Minnesota
Dayton toured flood-damaged areas of rural northeastern Minnesota on Tuesday. Stops included Sturgeon Lake, Willow River, Rutledge, Barnum and Moose Lake.
Minnesota Public Radio News reports Dayton said there may be some immediate state resources available to help rebuild damaged roads.
A bipartisan group of state legislative leaders is scheduled to meet with Duluth city officials, St. Louis County officials and neighboring community leaders on Wednesday.
Barnum Mayor Jason Goodwin told the governor his community's biggest problem is that no one has flood insurance.
Goodwin says his town needs help, but residents are also determined to do what they can on their own.
