Gov. asking FEMA to help state, local officials

Posted: Updated:

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Jack Dalrymple is asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency to assist state and local officials in assessing the damage caused by overland flooding in several areas of the state.

State emergency management officials say initial assessments show total flood damages are exceeding FEMA's threshold of $1 million for federal cost-share assistance.

KXMC-TV in Minot (http://bit.ly/1rjhvZf ) says torrential rains in some areas of the state led to flooding that damaged roadways and other public infrastructure. Counties in the northern and northwestern parts of the state have been hit particularly hard.

Dalrymple says he will continue working with local officials and FEMA to move forward on repairs and other flood-recovery assistance.
