Please, I need a reminder of something. I am not sure what year but the Missouri River on the northwestern border between Missouri and Kansas flooded and part of it shifted. Either a piece of Kansas is now on the Missouri side or a piece of Missouri is now on the Kansas side of the river. Can someone please tell me? I am not sure but I think this is in Buchanan County. Thank you.

It's in St. Joseph. Part of Missouri is on the west side of the river, where their airport is.

You can read the whole story here:

Note it wasn't an actual flood, but that pesky Corps of Engineers digging a new channel that caused the change.

Thank you for update. I couldn't remember. "Our tax dollars at work"?
