SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – Officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office in Omaha say they need guidance from their headquarters in Washington, D.C., before those funds are available for use.
But, some federal funds are already available.

“We have already received, and are employing, more than $100-million in emergency funds to support the ongoing flood fight, and recovery efforts,” said John Leighow, Chief, Readiness and Contingency Operations at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Northwestern Division.

Much of that money is dedicated to levee repairs along the Missouri River.
