Thunderstorms brought heavy rain and strong winds to much of the Dakotas, flooding streets and damaging buildings and vehicles.
In South Dakota, Mobridge Police Chief Justin Jungwirth tells the American News that wind gusts of nearly 80 mph blew down the screen at a drive-in movie theater and blew the roof off another building.
In North Dakota, high winds blew over a semitrailer on Interstate 29 north of Fargo. The driver wasn't injured.
Other damage included street flooding in the southwest North Dakota city of Dickinson and hail and wind damage in southwest South Dakota.
The National Weather Service says more thunderstorms are possible in the two states through the weekend.
