Apparently the threat of damage to roads doesn’t subside when the water goes away. A chunk of Highway 103 east of Dell Rapids collapsed overnight, forcing Minnehaha County to close the road again. Today, Hailey Higgins is going to take a closer look at the damage, which was under repair even before the collapse, and find out whether other roads are at risk.

Lake Poinsett is about three inches away from record levels. Shawn Neisteadt is back in Hamlin County today as people protect what they can.

Just southwest of there, we’re hearing Lake Thompson is also full. Peggy Moyer is talking with homeowners there.

The Sioux Falls School District has its work session today to deal with receiving less funding from the state. The district needs to cut more than $9 million. Superintendent Pam Homan has said that will not mean laying off staff or increasing taxes. Katie Janssen will be at today’s session to bring you the discussion tonight on KELOLAND News at six.

This morning KELOLAND News was at the scene of a house fire¬†west of Sioux Falls. The fire destroyed the home, which is near Wild Water West. Nicole Winters went back to the scene once the sun was up to find out more about what happened. Crews believe the fire started in the garage and spread to the house. I’m also working to get some extra photos to share with you on her story, so look for those.
