Flood storage on the Missouri River continues to fall

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- Dropping flood storage in the big Missouri River reservoirs may lead to higher flows from Gavins Point Dam, at least for a few more weeks.

Mike Swenson with the Corps of Engineers in Omaha says flood storage continues to fall.

Swenson says Lake Oahe is expected to continue to drop.

The other big reservoirs behind Garrison and Ft Peck dams will also drop over the next month.

Swenson says flows from Gavins Point Dam will be at twenty-five thousand cubic feet per second for the next few weeks before falling back later this fall.

Dry conditions are forecast to continue across the Missouri River basin into winter.
