RAPID CITY, SD -

Over 120 Soldiers from the South Dakota National Guard have been activated in response to the flooding in southeast South Dakota.

The Soldiers have been assigned to assist state and local emergency management with the rise in water levels along the Big Sioux River.

Currently, the National Guard is moving personnel, equipment and dump trucks to Union County as they assist with levee construction. They will also help with rescue, evacuation and sandbagging, if needed.

Early Tuesday morning Governor Daugaard declared a state of emergency and established an Emergency Operations Center. The EOC and National Guard will work together to coordinate levels of response.
