North Dakota has become the sixth state to have residents join a lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over Missouri River flood damage.
Flooding in previous years - particularly 2011 - prompted a March lawsuit by more than 200 landowners in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.
Plaintiff's attorney Eddie Smith says some people in North Dakota have now joined the lawsuit, and many more are expected after informational meetings in Bismarck this week.
Rural Mandan homeowner Judy Masset says the lawsuit isn't just about being compensated for damage but also about getting the corps to make flood control a priority.
The federal government has said the corps shouldn't be blamed for major flooding on the river because the management system doesn't guarantee a flood-free zone.
