Minnesota’s State Emergency Operations Center has been partially activated following the thunderstorms that dropped between two to ten inches of rain across the state. The Level III Partial Activation means Homeland Security and Emergency Management staff will closely work with county emergency managers to monitor flooding and other storm damages. They will also help facilitate any requests for state assistance.
Storm damage assessments are still underway and will be updated in our What’s New Section. Check back for updates.
More information on the Activation Levels can be found here.
Minnesota’s State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) activates during times of disaster or emergency. It serves as the hub for state agencies and their partners to support local governments and coordinate response efforts. Having an efficient and effective facility is key to successful emergency and disaster response. Lawmakers are now considering a $33 million bonding proposal which would build a new SEOC to replace the outdated one in downtown St. Paul.
