City of Yankton working with FEMA on updating their flood maps

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- The City of Yankton has been engaged with the Federal Emergency Management Agency over the past few years updating flood maps.

Yankton Economic & Community Development Director Dave Mingo says they are making progress.

Mingo says there will be a public input process.

Mingo says the new maps should reflect changes along the Marne Creek floodway.

The new maps could have an impact on flood insurance rates for businesses and homeowners impacted by any changes.

Mingo says they hope to have final maps by next spring.
