Yankton County Flood Response

Now that the waters have begun to recede at least in some areas of Yankton County from this weeks’ flooding, the work of documenting the damage gets underway.

Emergency Management Director Paul Scherschligt says forms have been sent out to area officials to record damage to infrastructure in their part of the county.

Scherschligt says the response to the flooding by emergency agencies was good.

Scherschligt says heavy rainfall combined with saturated and frozen soil to cause this week’s flooding in Yankton County.
