Weather continues to be a major story in southeast South Dakota. According to the National Weather Service, Thursday night’s storm means this is the wettest July on record in Mitchell.
The forecast calls for rain on and off for the next two weeks. There a lot of reasons, but basically it’s a soggy summer.
This will mean flooding along the James River, Firesteel Creek and Lake Mitchell this weekend. We will see crests Sunday morning as some of the rain that fell north of Mitchell flows here.
Got your short pants, hip waders and boots handy? Tied up the boat on the lake? Sump pump handy? Here it comes … again.
