How was your commute to work Monday morning? When I headed in, Minnesota Avenue in Sioux Falls had been plowed but many of the side streets were still covered in snow. And it sounds like conditions quickly got worse! Co-workers who arrived for our 9 a.m. meeting reported a slower than normal commute and some even admitted to sliding through intersections. Later on KELOLAND News, Jon Wilson follows up on the early morning crashes.
The weather will likely be a big story for the next few days. With snow, blowing snow and bitterly cold temperatures all in the forecast, you may not be thinking about spring flooding. But it’s likely to be a big problem in South Dakota once the snow melts. The National Flood Insurance Program is holding flood awareness meetings across the state. KELOLAND’s Ben Dunsmoor will have more on what’s being discussed on KELOLAND News at 5 and 6.
There’s an update on the Augustana band that had been touring Egypt when riots broke out across the country. As of this morning, all of the band members had left Cairo. Some will arrive in Minneapolis later today. The last of the group will be back in the states on Tuesday. KELOLAND’s Austin Hoffman will talk with a woman whose daughter is part of the band. And Hailey Higgins is working to talk with a man from Egypt about what sparked the unrest.
