ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) --  FEMA officials will be in Albert Lea Tuesday to estimate the extent of damage inflicted by June's severe weather and flash flooding.

FEMA will meet with local officials at 9 a.m. to collect documentation and see the damage to public infrastructure and some private non-profit organizations.

The tour is in its second week and has already assessed four Minnesota counties.

Fifteen more counties still need to be assessed.

Gov. Mark Dayton and his emergency management team believe there is $32 million in damage across the state.

The preliminary damage assessment needs to be completed before Dayton can make a presidential disaster request.
