SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Woodbury County is considering joining a class action lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

A law firm based in Saint Joseph, Missouri is filing the suit, saying the Corps is partly to blame for the record flooding along the Missouri River in 2011.           

Woodbury County would join Union County, South Dakota, South Sioux City, Nebraska and the Bev's on the River restaurant in Sioux City.

"The county attorney is checking into what our position should be. I think he's contacting some of the entities to see if it would be worth our while to get in," said County Supervisor Mark Monson.

Sioux City says it won't join the lawsuit.

The Army Corps declined comment.
