SF Drivers Caught In Afternoon Downpour

SF Drivers Caught In Afternoon Downpour
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The heavy rain had Sioux Falls drivers taking cover so they wouldn't get drenched.

The severe storm rolled into the city around 3 p.m. Monday and dumped nearly two inches of rain on Sioux Falls. 

It was a downpour that caught many drivers in the middle of their mid-afternoon errands and had many scrambling for cover.

The rain was heavy and it pounded many parts of the city. It made driving - even on city streets - difficult.

"I couldn't see even driving. I was probably driving down the middle of the road and didn't even know it," driver Alison Clyde said.

Clyde was one of the many drivers caught in the storm. She took cover from the rain and hail under an awning at a gas station near 12th Street and I-29.

"I just kept driving and was hoping I would find at least one empty spot to at least somewhat get under it so I wouldn't break any windows and get hail damage from it," Clyde said.

In Brandon, the heavy rain filled up drainage ditches and caused street flooding. All the rain from the past several days is also filling up the Big Sioux River and sweeping debris downstream.

Sioux Falls residents like Clyde say it's a storm they don't want to get caught in again.

"It was bad. I don't think I had ever driven in any of this before," Clyde said.
