The state of Missouri is creating more than 3.3 million dollars in grants to help local communities repair flood-damaged Missouri River levees.
7 local levee districts from the Iowa border through southern Buchanan county south of St. Joseph can share in the money, coming from community development block grant, and in some cases paying for nearly all the repairs. Bill Britton is emergency manager in Buchanan county where one levee has more than a mile's worth of breaches, it's getting nearly $350,000. He says the danger remains, and the money is needed.
