A group of volunteers who people in KELOLAND became familiar with during spring flooding is making a return trip to Sioux Falls for tornado cleanup.Members of Team Rubicon, who helped with the community-wide sandbagging effort this spring, are bringing in trained chainsaw operators to clear debris in the city, starting today.
A Sioux Falls family is making the most out of storm damage to their home by helping others to benefit from their loss. Matt and Gina Ditmanson’s home in southern Sioux Falls is a total loss in the wake of Tuesday night’s tornado. But they’re donated salvageable items to Habitat for Humanity.
