Flash Flooding Widespread
June 20, 2011 10:55 PM
Flash Flood Warnings remain in effect for many areas of southern and central South Dakota and travel is not recommended through the morning hours on Tuesday. Reports of as much as 8" of rain from Fort Thompson south to Burke have left many roads flooded or washed out from Hand and Hughes counties southward through Lyman, Buffalo, Brule, Gregory, and Charles Mix county. According to South Dakota Travel Officials "crews are working to locate and mark areas of highway that are covered with water or otherwise made impassable by the flooding. The crews aren’t always able to detect trouble spots immediately which is why no travel is advised through Tuesday morning." Rain can be expected off and on through much of Monday night and Tuesday morning so conditions are not likely to improve much through the morning hours Tuesday.
