If President Barack Obama approves [Governor] Daugaard's request, it will pave the way for federal assistance for people impacted by the storm. South Dakota last received an individual assistance declaration in 2011 for widespread damage from Missouri River flooding.Read it here.
“Mother nature is only warming up.”
South Dakota's GOP governor has been called "incompetent" and "uninterested in governing."
'Thank God I'm alive': 9 injured, no fatalities in Delmont tornado.Candidate Dennis Daugaard drew gasps from a State Fair audience in 2010 when he said: “I am skeptical about the science that suggests global warming is man-caused or can be corrected by man-made efforts."
Daugaard leadership voids have left emergency responders and fire departments in the lurch.
As South Dakota's GOP governor, whose party voted to impeach President Obama, begins the process of begging the White House for more money to mitigate red state failure the lone US Representative retreats into obscurity and the state falls further into the abyss.
Finally, yes, we need to improve housing for those in tornado alley. That’s a great thing for blogs that don’t focus on climate to write about.

The state just adopted education curricula that dumbs down climate science and avoids sensitive history like its own legacy of apartheid and genocide.
