RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Residents in the Black Hills of South Dakota are navigating through a sloppy mess today after warmer temperatures began melting record snowfall, leaving standing water on plowed roads.
Law enforcement officials say they've caught up on emergency calls from the storm, and now authorities are focusing on removing snow and debris and restoring power.
But some people venturing out in the warmer weather have wound up getting stuck on unplowed roads, impeding recovery efforts.
The storm dumped 4 feet of snow near Deadwood and 3.5 feet near Lead, and reports of 20 or more inches were common throughout the Black Hills.
Rapid City's 21½ inches of snow was a record for both a 24-hour period in October and the entire month.
