The National Weather Service says flash flooding late Tuesday inundated roads in the Rosebud Indian Reservation area. KELO-TV reports that about 300 people were displaced from their homes, though floodwaters were receding early Wednesday.

Tribal officials were still assessing damage.

The weather service says the storms packed winds gusting to 70 mph, and KELO-TV says some homes were damaged. There also was a brief tornado touchdown in Haakon County, with no immediate reports of damage, along with large hail throughout the region.
