UPDATE: The National Weather Service this morning issued a winter storm warning for all of Northwestern Wisconsin and a winter weather advisory for much of Northeastern Minnesota, including Duluth, where 3 to 6 inches of snow is expected tonight.
The 10-inch rainfall on June 19 and 20 changed plans for Northland residents from Two Harbors to Duluth to Sturgeon Lake. For much of the region, life quickly returned to normal. But for some residents, normalcy remains elusive four months later.
As a result of the special legislative session on Aug. 24 to grant flood aid to northeastern Minnesota communities affected by the June flood, the Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District has been awarded a $250,000 grant from the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources.
State agencies, local and tribal governments, and some private nonprofit
organizations in Minnesota have until Sunday to apply for federal public assistance to help recover from June’s severe storms and flooding.
With flood damage estimates now at nearly $109 million for public infrastructure alone, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton sent a request to President Obama last Friday for a disaster declaration for counties and tribes affected by the flooding last month.
