SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota transportation officials on Monday reopened parts of interstates that were closed Sunday due to a record-breaking storm.
Interstate 90 was reopened between Wall and Chamberlain in the morning. Interstate 29 was reopened in segments, with the final stretch between Watertown and North Dakota opened at midafternoon.
The weekend storm brought more than a foot of snow and freezing rain. Some stranded motorists had to be rescued in both states. The high school gymnastics team from Hot Springs spent Sunday night in Pierre after the team bus slid into the ditch. No one was hurt.
Aberdeen got 14.8 inches of snow Sunday, which the National Weather Service said was a single-day record for February in the city. Pierre got 11.8 inches, a city record for the date.
