LifeLight Ready For The Weather

August 31, 2014, 5:30 PM by Leland Steva

LifeLight Ready For The Weather
WORTHING, SD -

The weather might be an issue for the thousands of people at LifeLight. The outdoor event has dealt with mud all weekend, but it hasn't hurt the turnout.

In the seventeen years of the event, LifeLight CEO Alan Greene says they haven't dealt with real severe weather, but they still have a plan in place.

The event has a risk management team and operations team that watch the radar to see the weather rolling in. The teams try to give enough time to concert-goers to get to shelter, and there are buildings located near the main stage.

As for this weekend, the weather turned a lot of the dirt in the area around the event into heavy mud, but Greene says that last night was one of the biggest turnouts in recent memory.

“Yesterday people pulled together put woodchips down, plywood. Yesterday was perfect, so we have a good location and things are looking good today,” Greene said.

The Skillet concert last night is what brought in the large crowds to LifeLight last night.

We will hear from campers at LifeLight about how they prepared for the weather tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News at 10.
