Governor Tim Walz has authorized the use of Minnesota’s Disaster Assistance Contingency account to help pay for damage caused by severe winds, rainfall and flooding in mid-July of 2018. 

More than $460,000 will be allocated to Houston County due to storm damage that occurred in Hokah, Minn., specifically to Como Falls. 

The damage was estimated at close to $1 million at the park. 

Dedicated to Fillmore County was $128,000 for damage in the city of Rushford, Norway Township, and elsewhere in the county.
