Brad Lawrence, director of public works for the city of Fort Pierre, stands on the Missouri River floodplain in Fort Pierre, S.D. on Friday, March 21, 2014. He says more than 1,600 South Dakota residents will see their subsidized rates from the National Flood Insurance Program increase substantially, even with a measure signed by President Barack Obama that eases the initial burden set in a 2012 law. "This is going to be a problem here in South Dakota," Lawrence said. "I don't know if any of them understand the predicament they're in." (AP Photo) less
