Pennington County emergency management officials say heavy rains in the area are leading to rising creek levels and flash flooding.

A Red Cross shelter has been set up at the Hermosa Elementary School for residents who have been evacuated from the Keystone area.

The National Weather Service is forecasting up to 1 inch of rain Friday morning in an area that is already soaked from melting snow.
