Powerful winds damage Huron area

Posted: Updated:

Storms ripped through Huron Friday afternoon. 87 miles per hour winds were recorded at the Huron Airport.

Due to those damaging winds, the roof was peeled back the Huron Arms Apartments on the south side of Huron. Water poured through the roof, sheet rock, and fixtures, leaving at least ten residents displaces.

"It's completely shot. It's completely rolled. It's laying. The other half is rolled clear over," said caretaker James Gamber. If we get a big a rain tonight or tomorrow we're going to be in big trouble."

Also because of the high winds, two semi-trucks blew over in Beadle County.

There are also downed power lines all over the area.
