Description

By national standads, 1,228 dams in Missouri should have Emergency Action Plans to help with the evacuation of people living downstream if the dam should fail. According to the state's own records, only 33 do. When KOMU tried to verify that at least those 33 actually did have the plans on file, only three were found.
