SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - The City of Sioux Falls has activated the Emergency Operation Center due to the spring winter storm for its current and potential impact.
Sioux Falls Fire/Rescue Division Chief Jeff Helm says the EOC allows the city to coordinate resources to handle problems due to the weather. Helm says the ice accumulation is generating many emergency 911 calls.
Helm advises residents to be aware of downed power lines along with fallen trees and branches. With emergency calls at a high volume, you're advised to take extra precautions near these areas until emergency crews arrive.
