Audio: Missouri Farm Bureau President reports about 187,000 acres of land underwater in Missouri

Flooding in northwest Missouri

Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst says an estimated 187,000 acres of land is underwater in Missouri from recent flooding.



During a U.S. Senate field hearing in Iowa, Hurst says some people are angry at the Army Corps of Engineers, but he says a more comprehensive review of the root causes of flooding must be considered. He says any planned habitat construction projects that increase flood risk should be discontinued immediately.
