As flood waters rise, Missouri's governor briefed 4 state lawmakers and about two dozen emergency managers and local officials from across northwest Missouri yesterday afternoon in St. Joseph.
The governor came in from a military fly-over above the flooding Missouri River in Holt and Atchison counties. That's also where a Blackhawk helicopter was used yesterday in the Rockport area to help re-enforce stressed levees. Governor Nixon says the amount of water being released by the Corps of Engineers is unprecedented.
