U.S. Army Corp of Engineers’ monthly report more worry about drought than flood

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)-Instead of a flood threat, low water may be more of an issue along the Missouri River this spring.

During the Corps of Engineers monthly update, Kevin Low with the Missouri Basin River Forecast Center, says mountain snow pack is running below normal.

Low says snowpack on the plains is also fairly light and scattered.

Low says the only potential flood threat now is in the lower basin area.

The Corps is predicting a below normal run off year for the reservoirs and river system.
