Severe Weather Kills Woman Near South Dakota’s Lake Poinsett
Hamlin County Sheriff Chad Schlotterbeck says the woman was hunkered down in the bathtub in her trailer on the east side of Lake Poinsett when a storm lifted the structure and dropped it to the ground. The storms brought tornadoes, strong winds and hail the size of golf balls.
Schlotterbeck said the entire county of about 6,000 residents was without power Friday evening. The fire department was door to door to assess the extent of damage.
