Lake Kampeska’s on the rise and I think the numbers are interesting.

  • Wednesday at 7:00 a.m. the lake was 18.9 inches over full.
  • At 10:00 a.m. this morning, it was 20.1 inches over full.
  • And Watertown officials are expecting it to reach at least 42 inches over full.
  • But depending on the temperatures and any rain, they could push 60 inches.

Shawn Neisteadt is headed north today to show you how the homeowners are bracing for the expected water. (You can also monitor the lake level via Twitter.)

College students at South Dakota schools will find out later today how much more they’ll pay for their education. The Board of Regents is meeting today to decide on tuition and fee increases next year. Hailey Higgins will have reaction from students.

Governor Dennis Daugaard is opening up the state’s vacation home to the public. Valhalla has been the site of controversy in the past as some have questioned who was and wasn’t allowed to use the facility that was bought with taxpayer money.
