Missouri River Flood Victims Frustrated with Corps

Army Corps of Engineers officials got a blast of frustration from Missouri River flood victims during a hearing on the agency's river management plans.

More than 250 people attended the Tuesday night hearing.

Corps division commander John McMahon said some people assume flood risk when they decide where they're going to live. McMahon's statement prompted angry shouts from the crowd.

Carolyn Hesford said her home flooded even though she lives a mile from the river.

Bev Charles of Bismarck says the new river management plan doesn't show the corps learned anything from this year's flooding.

Patti Crawford of Bismarck says she hopes the corps is right about the flood not coming back next year. But she says if it does, the top Corps of Engineers officials should resign.
