MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — Damage reports are coming in after hurricane-force winds that swept through parts of South Dakota late last week.

Winds gusting to 76 mph late Thursday or early Friday are believed to have blown down a 100-foot-tall grain dryer at the CHS Farmers Alliance elevator in Mitchell.

General Manager Jim Morken tells The Daily Republic that the bin had about 6,500 bushels of corn. He says the grain worth about $20,000 likely isn’t salvageable.

The Capital Journal reports that winds gusting to 78 mph blew down a 60-foot-tall tree in Pierre.
