Parson: Flood Control Progress Being Made Along Missouri River

Missouri Governor Mike Parson says flood control progress has been made along the Missouri River.

Parson and the governors of Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas have been meeting occasionally since the 2019 flood to discuss Missouri River issues.

After Thursday’s meeting in Omaha, the governor said they cannot let up on flood control efforts, even though the region is dealing with drought…

At least 1.2 million acres of Missouri farmland fell victim to flooding in 2019, sparking Parson to convene a statewide flood advisory working group.
