Heavy Rains In Western SD Create Flash Floods In Hill City
Heavy rains in western South Dakota have caused flash flooding around the Hill City area of the Black Hills.
Pennington County Emergency Management officials say Palmer Gulch Road in Hill City is no longer passable.
Officials are asking drivers to take alternate routes as the storm has backed up traffic in the area and say more roads could be affected as storm water travels downstream.
Safety authorities say drivers should never go through water if they don’t know how deep it is. A car can be swept away by flowing water only a foot or two deep.
