DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad is heading back to western Iowa to check on flooding along the Missouri River.

His office says the governor and Derek Hill, the administrator of the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management, will be in Hamburg Wednesday morning to tour a secondary levee where workers are racing to add several feet to the top.

Branstad and Hill will hold a news conference after their tour.
