    Trudy Peterson was killed after flooding washed out the road



    Two people are dead after flash flooding in Sioux County late Monday night into Tuesday morning.

    The flooding hit a culvert that carries Kenel Road over Joe Brush Creek in Southern Sioux County, about 2 miles from the North Dakota and South Dakota border on the Standing Rock Reservation.

    The culvert was washed away in a powerful flash flooding that began Monday night and cost two people their lives.

    The flooding left a 30 to 40-foot section of the road missing, resulting in a 60 to 70-foot drop to the creek below.

    Family members said Trudy Peterson was on her way to work from Mobridge to a hospital in Fort Yates and most likely never saw the road was washed away because it was dark and raining.

    Also lost in the flooding was a United States Postal worker from Mobridge who worked the Southern North Dakota route.

    Two others survived the plunge and were rescued. A bus driver was flown from the scene to a Bismarck hospital and the driver of a pickup truck was taken by ambulance to a Mobrige hospital.

    Search crews worked from early morning through early evening to clear the wreckage and search for the missing, using every available resource including water rescue teams from both Burleigh and Morton counties. The highway patrol sent a plane in hope of finding those missing.

    Sioux County Sheriff Frank Landeis said they have already hired a contractor to begin working on the repairs to Kenel Road, but they expect it to be closed for at least the next two months.
    Anywhere between 5 and 7 inches of rain fell in that area causing the flash flooding.

    Several times during the search crews had to scale back from the culvert because it kept collapsing. The sheriff said they are going to wait a few days to allow the creek to fall further, then they?ll go back and look for more potential victims.

    Wow, that's some scary stuff! We got 6 inches of rain in an hour on Tuesday and everyone was freaking out about the flooding. I am afraid all this extreme weather is just a preview of what's to come in future years with climate change.

    Yeah. And this part of the world "should" be dried out and worrying about drought and fire by now, we are well past snow melt and spring rains. We're at about double our normal rain for the year, my basement has flooded for the first time ever... scary stuff.

    The bus driver is a relative of a friend of mine. Apparently he's crediting his late mother with saving his life. He's badly banged up, but should recover.

    I'm glad that he's going to be ok!

    A very very small preview. It will be thousands of years before anything extreme happens.
