Jim and Judy Holzwarth say a cabin on their property overlooking the Missouri River north of Pierre was destroyed by wind early Wednesday. No one was inside at the time.

The National Weather Service office in Aberdeen reported wind gusts approaching 70 mph throughout the region. The wind downed tree branches in many areas and cut power to the town of Gettysburg for a time. Downed trees caused some minor damage to homes in Bristol. More than an inch of rain fell in Pierre.

Portions of Spearfish Canyon in western South Dakota were blocked late Tuesday when a storm with strong wind and heavy rain downed trees and moved large rocks.
