The fast-melting snow in western South Dakota could cause some problems near creeks and rivers.
Officials at the Emergency Operations Center in Pennington County are asking everyone to stay away from Rapid Creek and other downstream waterways because water levels could rise rapidly.
In a news release, officials warn they have increased the amount of water being released from Pactola Reservoir, which could also cause Rapid Creek to rise.
And an increased amount of debris in the water is adding to the danger. Since all of the trees and branches could cause problems along the creek, officials ask you to just stay away from it.
