State Reviews Lessons Learned From Flooding
VERMILLION, SD -

South Dakota saw some of the worst flooding in history last summer, and now officials want to learn from that experience and see if there is anything they could do differently if it ever happens again.
 
The Missouri River Flood Conference begins Tuesday on the University of South Dakota campus.

The day will begin with a keynote address, "The Anatomy of the Missouri River Flood," from Tim Cowman, the executive director fo the Missouri River Institute. Sioux City Fire Chief, Tom Everett, and Rick Fosse from Iowa City, Iows, will also be speaking.

John Berge, the director of the USDA National Food and Agriculture Council and David Pearson with the National Weather Service will give presentations on Tuesday.

It will also include workshops on volunteer coordination, along with the role law enforcement and geological services played during last year's flooding.

The conference is open and free to the public. If you wish to attend please call Michelle Skaff at (712) 899-3757 or email at miscall@sioux-city.org.
