FEMA crews assess damage in Albert Lea

Posted:

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) -- FEMA has been touring counties in southern Minnesota this past week to assess damages from the June storms that brought flooding and high water damage throughout the region.

Thursday morning, FEMA officials met on Bridge Ave., just north of I-90 in Albert Lea.

FEMA, Homeland Security and emergency management met with local officials on this road which was partially washed away from flooding in the area.

The damage estimates from Freeborn County will be added to other counties throughout the area to determine if the state qualifies for federal aid after the storms.

Meanwhile, FEMA estimated damage in Fillmore County at around 2.6 million dollars.
