Agriculture Commissioner Dave Fredrickson said 80 percent to 90 percent of flood-damaged crops, farm equipment and livestock losses likely will be covered by insurance. At large farms, nearly all damage will be covered.

Home and business owners should start the recovery process by carefully tracking whatever messes the water left behind, state officials said. “Photographs, photographs, photographs to document the damage,” said Mary Tingerthal, commissioner of the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency.

Tingerthal said Small Business Administration and state funds may help homeowners and businesses with low-interest loans or other assistance. • 612-673-7646
