This emergency executive order includes Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Mower, and Olmsted counties. It comes after the Rock County Sheriff’s Office asked to use the Luverne Armory to shelter people from the storm in Magnolia after downed power lines caused major power outages Friday.

The order will remain in effect until emergency conditions come to an end.
