RAPID CITY, SD -
It's been six days since the snow started to fall in western South Dakota and the cleanup continues.
Rapid City officials say the main focus now is on restoring power, clearing roads and removing debris.
Power crews will continue to work to restore service to all customers. Black Hills Power says it believes 95 percent of its customers will have power by the end of the week. City officials are also urging residents to stay away from downed power lines because they may still have electricity running to them.
On Wednesday, officials increased the amount of water being released from Pactola Reservoir. They want to remind residents to expect to see the water levels of Rapid Creek rise as a result of the release.
And Pennington County residents impacted by the storm can still call the Helpline Center's hotline by dialing 211 for storm information, resources and support.
