Severe Storms Roll Through Sioux Falls, Surrounding Areas
After days of hot and humid temperatures, Mother Nature decided to bring some much needed rain. Unfortunately, a bit too much.
Severe storms rolled through the Sioux Empire, bringing with it rain, hail and high winds.
According to the National Weather Service:
A complex of thunderstorm developed early Sunday morning and moved quickly across eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota. These storms produced large hail and damaging wind gusts as they moved through. The largest hailstone reported was nearly 2.5″ in Slayton, MN. Winds greater than 60 mph were reported along with the hail in many cases. This thunderstorm complex brought much needed rainfall to portions of the region. The highest totals were reported up to 2″ near Huron, SD With fairly widespread 0.5-2″ totals where thunderstorms tracked.
We don’t have any reports of damage at this time. Stay tuned throughout the day to this radio station for the latest weather alerts and forecasts from the KDLT Weather Center.
