While climatologists monitor the risks for flooding in western and southern parts of the state, the Minnesota Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) team is preparing resources in order to quickly respond to community needs.
In the event of major flooding, research-based information and resources will be made available on Extension's Disaster Response website in addition to being shared with the public via the news media. Through state and local partnerships and grassroots efforts, citizens will also be able to pick up Extension materials on damage prevention, flood recovery and coping with stress from the Salvation Army, American Red Cross and at evacuation shelters.
If you haven't visited Extension's website for Flood & Rain recently, check it out to become familiar with the types of helpful information featured. If you are contacted by a member of the EDEN team with a request to review or create materials for this effort, we thank you in advance for making the request a priority.
