County reps say almost everything in its flood fight has stayed the same. The differences are on the good side; they're better prepared and need fewer sandbags. About 50 people were at the meeting.

DAVE ROGNESS - Cass County Emergency Manager: β€œThe crowds are a little bit smaller than we've seen in past years and it's, I think it's a level of confidence in the county's capabilities and communities within the county's capabilities in handling this kind of an event.”

The county has bought out around 80 homes since 2009.
