Recovery centers open in NE Minnesota

Disaster recovery centers are opening up in northern Minnesota today, in the wake of last month's storms and flooding.

The centers are being run by the Homeland Security and Emergency Management division of the state’s Department of Public Safety. They will bring together state and local government agencies that will have information and resources for residents and business owners who suffered damage during the flooding.

State services include the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, the Attorney General’s office, the departments of health and human services and the department of employment and economic development.
