Even though the Missouri River Levee at Hamburg is gone, crews are working through the night to make an existing levee higher.
This one was built in 1996 for a ditch west of town and workers have spent the last two days putting another 7 feet of soil on top of it. Hamburg fire chief Dan Sturm says it's the last line of defense for the partially-evacuated town.
