A screen grab still frame of a video by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers of the second intentional levee blast near New Madrid, Mo. on May 3. The Corps says that water has now stopped flowing through the blasted section because the river has dropped.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reporting a third partial breach in a Missouri River levee in Atchison County, Mo.
The corps says in a news release that the partial breach caused minimal damage because material from adjacent slopes filled in most of the opening. Workers were able to direct the flow away from the repaired areas of the levee.
Thursday's partial breach occurred about 80 feet north of two previous breaches near Hamburg, Iowa.
