Gov. Mark Dayton has authorized disaster relief for Redwood and Renville Counties following August storms that damaged roads, railway and agricultural drainage systems in portions of southwest Minnesota.

The governor's office said in a release it authorized an estimated $675,750 in relief for the counties. The funds will come from the State Disaster Contingency Account.

State law allows it to reimburse 75 percent of eligible costs for public infrastructure repair and cleanup, with local governments covering the rest, according to the release.

The storms occurred August 16.
