PIERRE, SD -
The mayors of Pierre and Fort Pierre say an earthquake in the area did no apparent damage to levees that have been holding back the swollen Missouri River.
Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill and Fort Pierre Mayor Sam Tidball say staff in both of the neighboring cities checked the levees and other flood protection infrastructure after Tuesday's 3.4-magnitude quake. Both mayors say no major problems were found.
Julie Dutton with the U.S. Geological Survey also tells the radio station that it's unlikely that Missouri River flooding had anything to do with the quake.
