The tornado that tore through Wessington Springs on Wednesday night did more damage than originally thought. 43 homes were damaged by the storm. Of those, at least 26 are not livable. A dozen businesses also were damaged.

South Dakota Senator John Thune surveyed the damage with Wessington Springs Mayor Melissa Mebius on Friday morning before attending a briefing on the damage at the Wessington Springs Fire Hall.

Any business, organization, or individual wishing to make a donation to the Wessington Springs Relief Fund may do so by contacting the Red Cross by calling 1-800-Red-Cross or going to redcross.org. Donations can also be made at any American Bank and Trust location in Wessington Springs, Alpena, DeSmet, Huron, Miller, and Wolsey
