Yankton cleaning up after weekend wind storm

YANKTON (AP) -- Residents of the southeastern South Dakota city of Yankton are cleaning up after a weekend storm.

The storm on Saturday brought heavy rain, hail and strong winds, and caused widespread tree damage. City crews on Monday were picking up branches put on curbs by residents.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brad Temeyer tells the Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan that the damage in the city likely was caused by straight-line winds. He says there's nothing to indicate it was a tornado.

At least one house was damaged in the storm, but no injuries were reported.
