FORT PIERRE, South Dakota — A public information meeting has been scheduled in central South Dakota to discuss a potential lawsuit stemming from the Missouri River flood in 2011.
The gathering is scheduled for Friday in Fort Pierre.
Representatives from the Polsinelli Law Firm based in Kansas City, Missouri, will attend the event. The firm is recruiting people interested in joining the possible suit against the U.S government.
The summer of 2011 was when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began releasing massive amounts of water from upstream reservoirs that had been filled with melting snow and heavy rains.
The onslaught lasted more than 100 days, busting levees, carving gouges, dumping sand and scattering tree limbs and other debris on farmers' fields.
