Lincoln County Flood Damage Estimated at $2 Million

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Officials in Lincoln County estimate recent flood damage to roads and bridges at more than $2 million.

Emergency Manager Harold Timmerman tells the Argus Leader newspaper that “the damage is massive.” He says road repairs are underway, and officials hope to complete the work by the time the ground freezes later this year.

County Commissioner David Gillespie says officials have identified at least 40 bridges in need of repair.

The county is looking to the Federal Emergency Management Agency to fund most of the work.

The flooding throughout southeastern South Dakota last month was caused by heavy rains. The Capital Journal reports that Doug Kluck with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the rainfall in parts of the region was at record levels.
