Southern Minnesota Floods

About Our Southern MN Flood Project

In late June 2018, widespread storms caused flooding in large parts of Southern Minnesota – as well as Iowa and other states. Our work is focused on Fairbault, Cottonwood, and Murray Counties assisting the MN VOAD and partner agencies provide assistance to storm-affected families.

NECHAMA is providing technical and administrative support for all MN and National VOAD members responding to the events.
