Small break in Iron Mountain Lake Levee

Posted: Updated:

The Iron Mountain Lake Levee in St. Francios County has a small break. Bismark Fire Chief Steven Bickey says the recent large amounts of rain have caused the levee to leak.

Bickey says it is not an immediate concern right now, but with the predicted rain it could be a major concern.

Bickey says crews are standing by to help out with sandbagging. Several homes downstream could be affected if the levee were to break.
