Sibley County State Of Emergency 28 Jun 13

The recent heavy rainfall around the area led the Sibley County Board to declare a State Of Emergency for the county this week. Parts of Sibley County received more than 7-inches of rain during the series of storms that swept through the area last Friday through Sunday. The storms brought heavy rain and strong winds, followed by flash-flooding in many locations and causing road closures and downed trees as well as other significant damage to public property. By declaring a State Of Emergency, Sibley County can now be eligible for State and Federal emergency disaster relief funds.
