Sioux Falls and the surrounding area has experienced a large amount of rain in a short time frame and more is expected. Flash flooding can occur anywhere, and conditions are favorable for flooding to happen.
Do not drive into flooded intersections. There may be debris on the road or under the water that a driver cannot see, and even a small amount of moving water can carry a vehicle off the road. Driving through flooded areas can cause extensive damage to your car and could be a danger to anyone inside the car.
Also, watch for manhole covers that may be missing from roadways. To report a missing manhole cover, call the Public Works Street Maintenance Division at 367-8255.
City crews are monitoring low-lying streets, drainage areas, and other areas prone to flooding and will continue to access the situation throughout the weather event.
