A flash flood claimed the lives of two South Dakota women last summer. Today, their lives will be remembered.
It happened on Council Creek on BIA Road 10 between Lower Brule and Reliance. Heavy rains swelled the creek, washing out the road.
Authorities say 56-year-old Gwen Michalek of Chamberlain and 61-year-old Ellen Wright of Lower Brule hit the washout with their car and both drowned.
Today their families are holding a sign dedication ceremony at the crash site in their honor.
Keloland News will have a crew there and bring you details of event the Thursday afternoon.
