ROCK PORT, Mo. (AP) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reporting a third partial breach in a Missouri River levee in Atchison County, Mo.

The corps says in a news release that the partial breach caused minimal damage because material from adjacent slopes filled in most of the opening. Workers were able to direct the flow away from the repaired areas of the levee.

Thursday's partial breach occurred about 80 feet north of two previous breaches near Hamburg, Iowa.

Kim Thomas, the corps' chief of emergency management in Omaha, says it is too early to determine what caused any of the three breaches in the levee. It was built by the corps but is maintained by a local sponsor.
