August 22, 2011, 8:50 AM
PIERRE, SD -
Water releases from dams on the Missouri River continue to drop, but South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says people shouldn't get complacent.
Daugaard says the river will continue to fall, but it will remain out of its banks through August and possibly longer. He says emergency levees are still subject to failure.
The governor says he knows that people who have been displaced by floodwaters this summer are anxious to get back home and begin cleaning up and getting their lives back to normal, but he urges patience for a while longer.
