Gov. Tim Pawlenty is due to view the damage from the air and then meet with local officials this afternoon. The public is being urged to stay away from the heavily damaged areas of Wadena and travelers are asked to find alternate routes to Highway 10.

According to a news release from Meeker County Sheriff Jeff Norlin, he received a request from Wadena County Sheriff Mike Carr for additional deputies to respond to calls for service and other duties in the storm ravaged area. The preliminary assignment for the Meeker County deputies is through the weekend.
