SOUTH DAKOTA - Thunderstorms that started in western, South Dakota moved quickly across the state, causing widespread damage, powerful winds, large hail, and even possible tornadoes.

The National Weather Service Office in Aberdeen has confirmed one tornado that touched down within the city of Redfield. Check out that story by clicking on the link below this story.

As the storms developed in western, South Dakota; large hail and gusty winds were first reported. The most massive hailstones were to the size of golf balls (1.75") that dropped from the storms near Lodgepole in northwest, South Dakota, and northwest of Belle Fourche in west-central, South Dakota.

These storms then formed a line and became a significant wind threat. A 104mph wind gust was reported just east of Hayes, South Dakota, in the state's central region. That wind gust would have been at a level of a Category Two Hurricane. Hayes was not the only region that saw hurricane-force winds.

Northeast of Bunker a 97mph wind gust was record and near Chantler Creek Rec a 91mph wind gust was reported.

84mph winds was reported a few miles northwest of Huron and 75mph winds near Blunt and Cavour.

Below you can find a complete list of storm reports from the National Weather Service Offices in South Dakota.
