Fort Leavenworth Airfield Could Be Threatened by Floodwaters

Missouri River flooding is not expected to have a major impact on Fort Leavenworth, but it could have an effect on the installation's airfield. Doug Cook, with the Department of Plans, Training and Mobilization at Fort Leavenworth, says it's a concern for both the fort and the city.

An additional levee surrounds the Fort Leavenworth airfield, but if it is overtopped or breached, the Army does have plans for keeping the airfield operational. The Missouri River at Leavenworth is under a flood warning until further notice.
