Amid Floods, St. Louis-Area Governments Work To Update Regional Disaster Plans

The Missouri side of the St. Louis metro area will have a new regionwide disaster plan next year come hell or floodwaters.

A local council of governments wants people concerned about flooding and other natural risks in their areas to comment on the plan before it is finalized in January.

The St. Louis Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan presents strategies to help local governments and school districts manage natural disasters. Experts say such plans give regions an opportunity to make changes that can decrease the costs and consequences of such disasters.

Prevention projects proposed in the new plan, which outlines potential policies through 2025, will be eligible for federal funding. This would be the fourth plan adopted since 2004, when the East-West Gateway Council of Governments developed its first plan with the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency.
