Jefferson, SD business completely avoids flood waters


Many businesses that spent this week preparing for the worst were completely missed by the flood waters.

Jack's Towing in Jefferson, South Dakota had more than 150 sandbags surrounding the building.

"You don't know what you're going to get, so basically what I did was try to sandbag in case it comes over. You just plan for bad luck, not good,"Jack's Towing, LLC. Owner Jack Karpen said.

Although, no water ran onto Karpen's property, he said it was still crucial to be prepared because mother nature is unpredictable.
