Rapid City schools lose thousand of dollars worth of food after storm

Posted: Updated:

KOTA -- When an early October storm rolled through the Black Hills, it left behind a wake of destruction. Thousands of cattle were lost, buildings buckled under the heavy snow and many were without power or heat for days.

The loss of power meant a loss of food for the Rapid City School District.

About $120,000 worth of food went bad in school kitchens across the city, Superintendent Tim Mitchell said.

Mitchell discussed the school's loss after the storm at the state of local government luncheon Tuesday in Rapid City. County Commissioner Nancy Trautman also spoke at the meeting and discussed what the county was facing after the storm.

She said the county faces a $35 million impact from livestock losses.
