Many residents of Blue Earth, Wabasha and Watonwan counties are asked to avoid the use of household water, are in need of sandbags and are still running from the rising flood waters.

Minnesota officials said in Blue Earth County, the high water of the LeSueur River is resulting in the failure of sanitary sewer systems, in a report by the Pioneer Press.
134 soldiers are in southern Minnesota helping with flood victims according to the Pioneer Press.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty assured those affected by the floods in southeastern Minnesota will receive federal aid, the Star Tribune reported. Clean up of the flood disaster continued Sunday after the severe rain last week.
