Sun shines, but flood fight continues
ST. PAUL -- Sunshine improved many water-logged Minnesotans' spirits Monday, but a flood fight may continue all summer for some.
With damage reports flowing in, state elected officials Monday extended for 30 days a disaster declaration Gov. Mark Dayton signed last week. While it lists 35 counties as part of the storm disaster, the state's emergency services manager said that by Monday 46 of the state's 87 counties had reported flood and other storm damage.
