NEW ORLEANS - New concerns this morning from the Army Corps of Engineers.

Damage from last year's record spring flooding could cause more problems for people along the Mississippi River this year.

The Corps is assessing the damage and will begin notifying affected communities in the next month.

Congress gave the Corps $802 million in December to fix levees up and down the river.

Corps officials say that identifying the weakest points and letting people know where they are is part of that.

They also say they're looking at ways to reduce risks before full repairs are completed.
