Rapid City residents react to blizzard

Posted:

Folks emerged from their homes today ready to shovel snow and begin cleaning up after the blizzard Friday. Friday's blizzard has left snow piled on driveways, lawns and streets. Trees succumbed to the heavy wet snow, breaking and falling onto sidewalks and streets.

Officials cannot say how long it will take for all the road ways to be cleared but road crews are working around the clock to clear roads of snow, down power lines and trees.

They want to clear major streets and then residential streets. Some rapid city residents have never seen a blizzard this bad. We spoke with a few people about Friday's megastorm. 

Francis Rowley said  "and as short as it was and as quick yeah I would say this is probably as much damage as I've seen in a long time".  

Dori O'Connor said "I've lived in rapid city almost my entire life and this is the worst snow storm I've ever been in so it's crazy"  

Christine Stephenson said "It's really nuts out there. It's crazy that we can't get anywhere. We are so lucky that we had power."
