The Risk Management Agency is in touch with the Corps of Engineers and is closely following all the developments around the Birds Point-New Madrid Floodway. Much of the land under consideration is already flooded by the heavy rains this spring. Insured crops on previously flooded land are covered by Federal crop insurance policies. Policyholders should notify their crop insurance companies as soon as they discover that their land is flooded. At this time, RMA is reviewing our statutory authority regarding any deliberate release of water by the Corps of Engineers. RMA continues to gather information and will be providing additional guidance to the insurance companies in the near future.
