Yankton County Flood Damage Estimate May Move Higher

Including about eighteen million dollars in damage to Marne Creek within the City of Yankton estimates from FEMA put flood related damages in Yankton County at just under twenty-one million dollars.

Yankton County Commission Chairman Dan Klimisch says as the recovery process moves forward, he expects that the damage estimates will go higher.

Klimisch says with the budget process for next year underway flood damages are having an impact on where dollars are allocated.

Klimisch says repairs to flood damaged roads throughout the county are ongoing.
