Most affected counties are in southern and western Minnesota.

The assessment is the first step in determining whether Gov. Mark Dayton will seek a presidential disaster declaration. If a federal disaster is declared, state and local governments and some nonprofit groups could receive federal aid to cover repair and cleanup costs.
