Heat Causes Issues

Hot temperatures and high humidity created some issues yesterday.  The South Dakota Highway Patrol warned motorists on social media of Interstate 90 buckling because of the extreme heat.  At one point the interstate had to be shutdown until highway crews were able to fix the issue.
