(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Today federal, state, and local officials are touring the damage from the late June storms that flooded many areas locally.

The group is in Preston, and will be touring the flooded areas in Fillmore County, tallying up the amount of damage.

If the total is in excess of $7.26 million, then Governor Mark Dayton can ask for federal disaster assistance.

Tomorrow the damage assessments will be in Freeborn County, then move on to several other hard hit parts of the state.
