Dell Rapids Dealing With Floodwaters


Flooding has already started in parts of Southeast South Dakota as people are making last-minute preparations.

KELOLAND’s Nathan Finster was in Dell Rapids Sunday to find out how people where dealing with the floodwater.

People helped neighbors put sandbags around their houses.

Volunteers also helped make sandbags for those needing last-minute supplies.

Will Dearduff is a high school senior who’s helped make sandbags all week. 

“A lot of people have come out to get sandbags and have actually come out with their trucks to bring the sandbags to other people who don’t otherwise have a way to transport them, Dearduff said.

Dearduff says many people from the high school has volunteered to help out.

Coming up later tonight on KELOLAND News, we’ll tell you how the community of Dell Rapids is planning on moving forward.
