South Dakota emergency agencies are asking snowmobile operators in the Rapid City area to help find motorists stranded by an autumn storm.
The National Weather Service says the storm dumped at least three and a half feet of wet, heavy snow in the Black Hills. Lead in the northern Black Hills had received 43 ½ inches of snow by 7:30 p.m. Friday and more had fallen overnight. Rapid City had 21 inches, but 31 inches was recorded just a mile southwest of the city.
Officials made the plea for snowmobilers on Saturday morning.
Officials say emergency response agencies have prioritized calls based on life safety and are working to rescue stranded motorists who spent the night in their vehicles.
