S. D. State Disaster Funds Replenished with $1.5 Million

March 13, 2007

A state account that is used to pay for the cost of responding to natural disasters in South Dakota has been replenished by the Legislature to the tune of $1.5 million dollars.

The money will be spent to handle remaining expenses from a 2005 Thanksgiving weekend ice storm that knocked out power for several days in the eastern third of South Dakota, an April of 2006 blizzard in western South Dakota, and prairie fires that scorched large areas of central and western South Dakota last summer.
