While the East Coast deals with the massive impact of their weather this week, many in the Northland are still feeling the impact of our flooding this summer.  Today we received some good news in terms of disaster aid.

The Northland's NewsCenter is reporting that more than $24 million in disaster assistance has been approved for Minnesota communities affected by the June storms and flooding with more funds expected in the coming weeks.

The disaster funds are provided by the State of Minnesota’s Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on a 25%-75% cost share basis.
