South Yankton Businesses Destroyed By Storm



Bookmark and Share

People in the Yankton area are still cleaning up from a thunderstorm that caused plenty of damage this past Saturday.  While most of the work is just cleaning up downed branches, some businesses are dealing with much worse problems.

 

Straight line winds tore through storage sheds and part of an auto body shop south of Yankton. After those buildings flew through the air, what was left of them piled up on South Yankton Auto Repair.  

 

“I just caught a glimpse of it. It lifted that shed up and took it right on over right through the power lines,” said Dennis Barnes.

 

Dennis watched a storage shed get blown apart by the storm. He was watching from the other side of a parking lot and he thought his house was next.

 

“It was cracking. You could hear it cracking and stuff I just figured it was going but it never did,” said Barnes.  

 

Any other Saturday morning, Todd Haberman would be working at his shop. He happened to be visiting family in Wyoming this past Saturday. 

 

“We got a phone call on Saturday around nine about a neighbors building that blew on ours and this is what I came back to,” said Haberman. “The ceiling is coming down and his furnace is still up there. It's just pretty much totaled.”

 

Trees act as a net for smaller pieces of tin roof and the west sides of nearby birches are coated in white.

 

“That's all the blown insulation from his building which is over there right now,” said Haberman.

 

“Scary. Because I didn't have any place to go,” said Barnes.

 

Businesses destroyed. But, the cleanup is well underway, as South Yankton residents are happy to be safe and hope to have things up and running soon.

 

Haberman met with an insurance agent today and says he will probably rent a new shop to continue working. He built his business over 20 years ago.
