MINOT, N.D. (AP) - An elementary school in Minot severely damaged by Souris River flooding last year is getting federal help.

North Dakota's congressional delegation says the Federal Emergency Management Agency has allocated nearly $2.9 million to help repair Longfellow Elementary.

FEMA late last year announced nearly $30 million in federal money to rebuild Minot's Lincoln Elementary and Eric Ramstad Middle School, both of which were destroyed in the flood. FEMA also has previously given Minot's school district about $8.5 million for other flood-related measures.
