(Le Mars) -- On Monday afternoon and into Monday evening the focus for city officials turned to the Le Mars airport when a berm was breached compromising the airport's facilities. Personnel from the city water department, public works department, fire department, and airport manager Earl Draayer worked together to protect the airport hangers. Nearly a thousand feet of the airport's runway was under water,and more water was rushing toward the facilities. Airport officials, volunteers, and aircraft owners assisted moving planes away from the hangers to temporary storage facilities. Public Works Superintendent, Steve Hansen and Fire Chief Schipper explain the strategy used to get the excess water away from the airport.
