Flood warning for Big Sioux

Posted: Monday, Jun 24th, 2013

• Should crest near Brookings and Bruce Tuesday

BROOKINGS – Brookings County is in good shape this week following the high winds, hail and thunderstorms that have hit areas all around us, says Bob Hill, the county’s director of emergency management.

However, Hill notes, the National Weather service in Sioux Falls has issued a flood warning for the Big Sioux River near Bruce

Recent heavy rainfall across central and northeast South Dakota has caused area rivers to rise, and the Big Sioux is among those affected. Hill said the Big Sioux near Bruce is expected to crest Tuesday at about 9.5 feet. According to the Weather Service, the Big Sioux was at 8.0 feet at 9 a.m. Sunday, which is flood stage for that area.
