Gov. Daugaard: Storm damage assessments slated


        SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ Governor Dennis Daugaard says damage assessments will begin next week for counties and tribal land impacted from an early October storm that dumped 4 feet or more of snow in some areas.
       Daugaard says the assessment by state, local and federal officials will begin on October 28th. The assessment will cover 15 storm-impacted counties and Oglala Sioux Tribe and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe reservations.
       The governor uses the results of the assessments to determine whether a request for a presidential disaster declaration is warranted.
       The storm knocked out power to about 30,000 people, closed roads and killed tens of thousands of cattle.
