Friday storms flood Gregory County roads

Local News

DALLLAS, S.D. (KELO) — There will be more cleanup duty ahead for people in Gregory County following Friday night’s severe weather.

The storms produced two tornadoes in the county. Emergency Manager Brad Christensen says straight-line winds knocked-down tree branches in Dallas, SD.

He says the storms also caused brief power outages in both Dallas and Gregory.

Christensen says the biggest problem is flooding from the heavy rain. Roads throughout the county were underwater and culverts were plugged with water and debris.

Rain also fell in Burke, were residents are cleaning up from Tuesday night’s tornado.
