Storm strikes De Smet
Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Tornado sirens went off in De Smet shortly after 3 p.m. June 21.
“We hadn’t seen a funnel, but it was so black,” Kingsbury County Emergency Management Director Cindy Bau said.
Residents are still cleaning up after the violent storm left trees and branches down all over town and damaged several buildings and vehicles.
What was surprising was the intensity and severity of the storm. The front moved into the area from the west, downing trees and causing damage to buildings in Huron and Iroquois before hitting De Smet.
