Severe Weather in South Central South Dakota

High winds, hail and flash flooding from severe thunderstorms destroyed a trailer house and damaged other homes on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

 

Glen Yellow Eagle with the tribe's disaster office says winds in Tuesday's storms near Parmelee destroyed a trailer house and blew another mobile home off its foundation. He says another house near Norris had part of its roof blown off.

 

Yellow Eagle says a lot of roads were washed out and a dam breached that drained into another dam, which caused flooding in several houses that had to be evacuated.

 

He says hail damaged numerous windows.

 

The National Weather Service says the storms packed winds gusting to 70 mph.

 

There also was a brief tornado touchdown in Haakon County, with no immediate reports of damage.
