Last summer at this time, Nebraska and Iowa were in the grips of major flooding along the Missouri River. Now, a small southwest Iowa community hopes to make permanent a levee that protected them from the river. Omaha Public Radio's Deborah Newcombe takes us there.
More information about Hamburg's efforts is available at www.hamburglevee.com. The Omaha District of the U-S Army Corps of Engineers estimates it'll cost 280-million dollars to repair all the damage caused by last year's flooding will cost 280-million dollars.
