HEARTLAND FLOOD: Corps says majority of Missouri River Levee System restored
Officials say most of the Missouri River Levee System has been restored following massive flooding a year ago that devastated levees in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced the fix saying while there's still much work to be done throughout the region, crews had closed 24 breaches along with the main river system.
We're told they spent more than 4 hundred million to date on the work.
Officials say nearly 4.73 million cubic yards of sand had to be moved in the effort, equal to two empire state buildings.
