Congressman Sam Graves provided a flood update and answered questions from a group of concerned citizens today at the Parkville American Legion before touring the sandbagging effort by volunteers.
Acknowledging that this is a "frustrating process," Graves told the crowd that he planned to meet with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers later in the day and pledged to provide assistance to Missouri riverfront towns.
Platte County Presiding Commissioner Jason Brown also attended the meeting and encouraged business owners and residents to formulate an evacuation plan.
"Depending on what the Corps does or doesn't do, water could be here for an extended amount of time. Government can't do everything for everybody," Brown said.
