Cleaning up after the storm

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 9th, 2013

A storm that rolled through Brookings County early this morning brought with it lots of lighting and thunder, heavy rain and strong winds.

The weather took down this large tree branch at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Second Street South, where City of Brookings workers were busy cleaning up the mess at about 7 a.m.

Weather observers with the state’s Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network reported rainfall totals of anywhere from a half-inch to more than an inch of precipitation in the county this morning. Another county resident who lives between Volga and Arlington reported dumping nearly two inches of rain from her rain gauge this morning and said there was a lot of corn leaning over in fields.
