The Target store in Sioux Falls re-opened Monday after the store was forced to close following a lightning strike that tore a whole in the roof.

During Saturday’s severe weather, lightning struck the building at around 10:00 p.m. causing a section of the roof to collapse. Fortunately, the damage was in a back section of the store where there were no employees or customers. In addition to the roof, several windows where shattered by the impact.

After the strike, employees and customers were evacuated from the building and the store was closed.

On Sunday, the store was closed so that workers could stabilize the roof and begin repairs. Crews added additional support structures to stabilize the roof and begin construction of temporary walls to seal off the damaged area. However, it could be 6 weeks before crews can completely repair the damaged roof.

Monday, the store re-opened for business, with customers unaware of the large hole that remains in the roof of the building.

Target is unsure of the total cost of the damage at this time. They must also assess the damage to stock that was located below the opening, which included some of the store’s HDTVs and electronics.
