With all of the damage from the floods and tornadoes, Governor Dennis Daugaard is asking for federal help.
On Monday, he requested that FEMA and the Small Business Association join state teams in assessing the damage in Jerauld, Lincoln and Union Counties.
It's the first step in determining if federal assistance and loans will be available to storm victims.
The preliminary assessments will begin on Thursday.
