Spring flooding will cost the state $14.7 million

The preliminary price tag put on damage from flooding statewide this spring is $14.7 million, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety announced Friday.
The state presented the information to the Federal Emergency Management Agency in hopes of securing a major disaster declaration for Minnesota, according to the Star Tribune.
State officials hope to get funding for the repair and improvement of roads, bridges, and public buildings, according to the Pioneer Press.
If the state receives a major disaster declaration, the federal government would pay for 75 percent for public infrastructure.
