LINCOLN COUNTY, S.D. (KSFY) - The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says several roads are flooded as rain and snow melt continue to affect the county.

Authorities are making closed roads, but the sheriff's office said crews are running out of signs.

Highway officials are encouraging people to drive carefully and remember to "turn around, don't drown."

The Canton Fire Department will have a sandbag-filling station at the Tri-State Ready-Mix plant in Canton for county residents in need of sandbags.
