KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) — A mobile home park is being evacuated in Rapid City because of flooding.

Pennington County Emergency Management officials say a shelter for residents of Melody Park Mobile Home Park is being set up by the Red Cross at First Weslyan Church.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says creeks in Hill City and Keystone have flooded onto roads and bridges. Authorities say many of the bridges in Keystone are nearly under water. Grizzly Gulch Road is flooded and Main Street is down to one lane in some areas.

The sheriff’s office says Old Hill City Road is flooded from Kemp’s Camp to Keystone and is being closed as rocks are falling from the hillside.
