State governors continue flood control discussions along Missouri River

Despite water levels along the Missouri River getting low again, state governors are still discussing flood control measures.

Governors from Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas all agree they cannot let up on flood control efforts now, even though the region is facing severely dry conditions.
That stems from 2019 when more than a million acres of Missouri farmland alone was impacted by flooding.

The Flood Advisory works to keep river navigation open, as well as help rebuild levees.

The National Weather Service fears water supplies may soon be an issue for those who withdraw water from the Missouri River.
