RAPID CITY (AP) — Pennington County auditors have crunched the numbers and concluded that a major October blizzard cost the county about $454,000.

They told commissioners Tuesday it's the most accurate number since they started collecting information shortly after the storm.

KOTA-TV reports that if the Federal Emergency Management Association reimburses the county 75 percent of that cost and the state contributes 10 percent, the remaining balance would be around $68,000. That would come from the emergency disaster fund.

The commission will vote on whether costs like tool rentals will be included in the county's final report to FEMA at the next meeting on Jan. 7.
