A Black Hawk neighborhood seeks damages due to a sinkhole

Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO)– A judge has ruled that a Black Hawk neighborhood has legal standing to seek damages due to a sinkhole from the state of South Dakota.

The ruling may now proceed with class-action status, which would include any resident affected by the sinkhole that exposed an abandoned gypsum mine in April 2020.

More than 40 people from 15 homes were forced to evacuate due to the sinkhole and mine.
