Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton's letter to the Obama administration was responded to Friday with federal aid for the counties and tribal nations affected by last month's floods, reported the Star Tribune.
The public infrastructure damage added up to at least $110 million, reported the Duluth News Tribune.
Residents said they are thankful for such a quick response from the President. Dayton said he did not doubt financial aid would come, it was just a matter of time, according to the Duluth News Tribune.
According to the Star Tribune, some counties have yet to be assessed for the cost of damage and so more aid may be available depending on what those costs are.
