Flooding is once again causing problems in western KELOLAND following strong storms Thursday night.

Captain Tony Harrison with the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office posted pictures of flooding on Facebook.

Still out working with the Sheriff. Came across this driver who tried to cross a flooded road. Was also drunk. Never cross flooded roads and certainly never drink and drive.

Harrison said the driver of one vehicle was trying to cross a flooded road. Rapid City police said they were been called to several water rescues due to vehicles trying to drive through flooded roads.

Authorities remind everyone to not drive through standing water because you don’t know how deep it is or what is underneath.
