Storm Takes Drivers By Surprise

June 5, 2014, 6:04 PM

Storm Takes Drivers By Surprise
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The storm this afternoon surprised a lot of drivers on the roads. Heavy rain and hail caused people to pull over across the area, to take shelter.

With heavy rain and hail, visibility was almost zero on roads in southeastern KELOLAND today.
This made driving nearly impossible.

"We are caught with this storm here. Which is scary because this is our first witnessed tornado," Art Magnaye said, driving through Sioux Falls from Canada.
Art Magnaye and his wife Joyce are on their way from Canada to Florida when the storm hit.

"Well it was calm until we pulled and went to McDonald's and then pulled up for gas and I heard the siren and the warning," Magnaye said.

The gas station clerk told the couple they needed to stay put. Both Art and Joyce are in their 70's and have never seen weather quite like this.

"It is different and it's scary because we can see the clouds, you know? From the outside," Magnaye said.

"I seen some clouds turning. It looked like that it was about ready to come down. It looked like some funnels were coming around," said Sioux Falls native, Breanna Bourne said.

Bourne is from Sioux Falls and says she's never seen a tornado either.

"It's more of like a fascination than anything to be scared of. If I seen it coming towards the storm, then I'd start freaking out. That'd be a little scary," Bourne said.

Magnaye says he will be keeping a closer eye on the weather for the remainder of his trip to Florida.
