Minnesota agencies stepping back in flood zones

Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — State agencies in Minnesota are taking advantage of the receding Red River to catch a break and regroup — before an anticipated second crest in mid-April.

The Minnesota National Guard ended its mission in Clay County this morning, but some staff will stay in place.

The state Department of Health has also demobilized its Mobile Medical Unit — which went to Moorhead while emergency health care services there were limited.

State Homeland Security and Emergency Management director Kris Eide says it’s important to rest and regroup in order to continue working effectively over the next few weeks.
