ARMOUR, S.D. — A storm packing wind gusts up to 80 mph damaged buildings and trees when it moved through the town of Armour in southeastern South Dakota.
A truck driver was taken to a hospital when his semi overturned south of Armour, but no other injuries were reported as the storm passed through the town of about 700 people Monday morning.
Douglas County Emergency Manager Patrick Harrington says Armour schools closed for the day because power went out just as kids were arriving. The power was out for about three hours.
After moving through Armour, the storm dropped half to three-quarters of an inch of rain in Sioux Falls.
Mike Gillespie with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says there’s a chance for more thunderstorms firing up Monday night.
