The Red Cross has closed two eastern South Dakota shelters opened in the aftermath of severe weather, but the organization is continuing its disaster relief efforts in the area.

Emergency shelters in Sioux Falls, Madison, and Trent are now closed, according to Red Cross spokesperson Gretchen Hjelmstad. The Yankton shelter remains open.

Red Cross teams will begin surveying damage in and around Madison Tuesday, in order to determine how the organization can best support disaster relief efforts moving forward.

The organization is encouraging people in the Sioux Falls area to self-report damage to the Helpline Center by calling 211.
