Unlike surrounding states, South Dakota chose "not" to call up the National Guard for the spring storm.
On Wednesday, Minnesota called in their national guard to help residents after the storm knocked out power to thousands of homes.
However, emergency manager Regan Smith says the city of Sioux Falls felt like their services weren't needed, at least not yet.
He says the city's main focus is life safety, restoring power and opening city streets.
Smith says the city has been assessing the damage and when they get a better idea what is needed, they may ask for assistance on the state and federal level.
