The governors of Missouri, Iowa, and Nebraska have come to the table again to talk about flood control efforts being made along the Missouri River. They, along with the Kansas governor, signed a four-state agreement after getting hammered by flooding in 2019. The agreement involves working together with the Army Corps of Engineers to combat flooding. After Thursday’s meeting, Governor Parson said they don’t want to wait until history repeats itself – again.
The Missouri Farm Bureau says one-point-four million acres of Missouri farmland went unplanted in 2019 due to flooding.
