ST. PAUL - Gov. Mark Dayton on Wednesday declared a emergency in response to last month's storms. The order is effective immediately in 26 counties, including Stearns County.
The storms hit the state June 20-26. St. Cloud spent $180,000 to help clean up from a June 21 storm.
The order stipulates that state agencies will help provide assistance to help local governments recover.
