Derecho damages South Dakota crops

On Tuesday, a heavy thunderstorm system caused damaging winds in southeastern South Dakota.

Schumacher of the National Weather Service of Sioux Falls says the storm was classified as a derecho in the brownfield. “Multiple gusts over 75 mph,” he said. “There is a lot of tree damage in this area. We know that there were flattened crops and some structural damage. Fortunately, that’s what we saw in May. Seems to be a little less than. “

He says they are still collecting damage reports from rural areas. “This year was a fairly active and devastating year for the entire region of the country,” Schumacher said. “This is the second derecho this year.”

Derecho on Tuesday also affected parts of Iowa and southern Minnesota.
