SOUTH SIOUX CITY OFFICIALS CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE MISSOURI RIVER CONDITIONS ON THE NEBRASKA SIDE OF THE RIVER.

CITY ADMINISTRATOR LANCE HEDQUIST SAYS THIS IS THE THIRD ROUND OF FLOODING THIS YEAR THAT IS AFFECTING THE COMMUNITY:

OC……….OTHER AREAS HAVE. :17

THIS IS THE LATEST TIME OF YEAR THAT HEDQUIST CAN EVER REMEMBER A FLOOD THREATENING THE CITY.

HE SAYS THE FREQUENCY OF FLOODING SHOWS SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE IN HOW THE RIVER IS MANAGED BY THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS:
