KC Corps district declares end to 2019 flood event on Missouri River

The Kansas City district of the Corps of Engineers has declared an end to the 2019 flood event on the Missouri River which began March 13th.

That’s 279 days since the district’s emergency operations center activated to level 4 for flood control. That’s the longest stretch of continuous flood activity in the district’s history.

All Missouri River stages within the Kansas City district have been below flood stage since last Wednesday.

All levee sponsors have until January 15th, 2020 to submit a request to the Corps for repair assistance.

Temporary work to shore up the levee at Mill Creek in Holt County, Missouri continues.

The Kansas City corp district covers most of Missouri, southern Nebraska and a portion of south-central Iowa.
