Governor Noem In Yankton

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem stopped in Yankton Friday to survey the damage from this weeks’ flooding and discuss the issue with local officials.

Governor Noem says declaring a disaster related to the infrastructure damage sustained this week will allow for federal relief funding.

Noem says the weather factors involved in this week’s flooding combined to create a dangerous situation.

Noem stopped in Yankton on her way to Dakota Dunes and then Sioux Falls to survey more flood damage.
