South Dakota's Office of Emergency Management says it has completed the paperwork and closed the books on three presidentially declared natural disasters in the state in 2008.
A winter storm with record snowfall happened in early May 2008. A severe storm caused widespread flooding in June of that year. Another record winter storm hit in early November.
State Public Assistance Officer Jack Dokken says the trio of disasters affected dozens of counties and thousands of people, and caused a total of nearly $25 million in damages.
The Office of Emergency Management continues to manage nine other presidential disasters in South Dakota dating back to 2009.
