ST. PAUL, Minn. — President Bush declared northwestern Minnesota a disaster area Friday, making federal aid available to a region where up to a foot of rain fell in recent days.

The city of Roseau, about 10 miles south of the Canadian border, was hardest hit. Nearly every building in the town of 3,000 people was damaged by the Roseau River, which remained about 6 feet above flood stage Friday. Flooding was reported in 13 counties.
