Daugaard: Dakota Dunes could be under water up to 2 months


Citing new data, South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Dakota Dunes could be under water for up to two months.

Speaking late Monday morning, Daugaard said the flow of the Missouri River should reach 150,000 cubic feet per second by June 14. He says that will put the river depth at 1,098 feet above sea level. That depth could linger until mid-July, the governor says. He says levees in the community should be built up to 1,000 feet above sea level.

While Dakota Dunes is not under a mandatory evacuation, Daugaard strongly recommends residents to take action immediately to secure their possessions and sandbag their homes. He says every property owner should be prepared for the worst.
