State Emergency Operations Center
Our recent stretch of spring storms has toppled trees and brought down power lines across Minnesota, but the biggest threat of all with the rain has been flooding. Far northern Minnesota has been one of the spots hit hardest by the spring rain.
Authorities have activated the State Emergency Operations Center to help communities in southwestern and northern Minnesota respond to damage from recent severe storms. The announcement says it’s just a partial activation that requires officials from various agencies to determine whether state resources are needed for the recovery effort. It says no local officials have requested state resources so far.
Minnesota officials have set up a public hotline to help residents deal with propane issues during this recent shortage. The State Emergency Operations Center says the hotline will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Spring snow fall has triggered partial activation of the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC).
As communities around Minnesota prepare to fight spring flooding, the state has opened its Emergency Operations Center to keep tabs on the efforts.
