ALBERT LEA, MN — Local counties dealing with claims from summer storms are getting some assistance.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has set up a field station at the Freeborn County Highway Department.

It allows FEMA to begin processing claims.

That also includes traveling to those counties hit hardest by the bad weather last June.

“Basically , they’re operating out of here and traveling out to the different sites every day and going to be handling that,” Freeborn County Emergency Management Director Rich Hall said. “So, they’re basically just meeting out of here and going out to the sites every day.”

FEMA will be traveling to Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn and Faribault counties to assess claims.

Hall adds the largest costs will be from road and ditch repairs.
