Minnesota Activates Emergency Operations Center

June 16, 2014, 5:02 PM


Authorities have activated the State Emergency Operations Center to help communities in southwestern and northern Minnesota respond to damage from recent severe storms.

The announcement says it's just a partial activation that requires officials from various agencies to determine whether state resources are needed for the recovery effort. It says no local officials have requested state resources so far.

The state Homeland Security and Emergency Management division says local officials are assessing damage to 12 township and county roads in Rock County. More than 6 inches of rain fell in Pipestone County, flooding roads in 75 locations in the Edgerton area and washing out the road to a bridge on the Rock-Pipestone County line. Sandbagging continues in Koochiching County to protect the International Falls water treatment and wastewater treatment facilities.
