Gov. Mark Dayton visits communities affected by flooding

This week, Governor Dayton continued his travels across Minnesota, visiting communities impacted by recent flooding. Over the last week, he has met with emergency managers and local officials in 12 counties to assess flood damage and coordinate the state's response efforts.

“When a disaster like this happens, we're not Republicans or Democrats. We're all Minnesotans," said Governor Dayton. "There's a lot of human suffering and it's very painful, but people are very resilient and very strong in an emergency. They help people -- neighbors and friends, and even complete strangers. It's really extraordinary.”
