Our crews have been out gathering the flooding stories you’ll see on Midday and tonight on KELOLAND News.  Thanks to all of you who have sent in photos and videos of the flooding in your area.

The flooding isn’t only affecting people, though.  Chief photographer Kevin Kjergaard captured this rescue just west of Spring Creek Golf Course this morning:

I was able to go out to Falls Park this morning after we noticed the lower overlook area was actually underwater.

Highway 11 has been hit hard, southeast of Sioux Falls.  There are roads washed out and closed and that’s causing a headache for drivers.

The heavy rain from overnight is also creating sewage backups.  The City of Sioux Falls held a news conference this morning to talk about the situation.
