Recent Hail Damage in South Dakota’s Northern Black Hills Costing Millions

July 26, 2018

Recent hail damage to public buildings in Deadwood, South Dakota, is expected to exceed $2 million.

Transportation and Facilities Director Tom Kruzel says a $1.8 million damage estimate involves only the 45 public structures in town, and doesn’t include city vehicles and hundreds of the city’s iconic globe lamps.

Kruzel says City Hall got hit particularly hard, with damage to the roofs, air handlers and skylights.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports the city is moving forward with insurance work.

Many residents and businesses in the Northern Black Hills also are dealing with the repercussions of the recent severe weather. In Lead, the Black Hills Mining Museum needs a new roof that will cost $50,000.
