Extreme Weather Chase Team Joins KELOLAND TV To Provide Exclusive Storm Coverage

An exciting development in my world of chasing. Our team has been hard at work chasing already this season KS, IA, SD, OK, and CO. As we expect the pattern to shift north into our area it seemed a perfect time to share this news:

Extreme Weather Media, LLC is proud to announce an exclusive media partnership with KELOLAND TV. As a part of the new agreement, the EXWX Chase Team will be streaming video and providing live reports to KELOLand viewers from the field during severe weather events. By providing real-time coverage on KELO, the EXWX Team is providing valuable information to the public when it matters most.

During severe weather events, EXWX Chase Team will deploy multiple chase vehicles equipped with high definition cameras, live streaming equipment, and radar/data receiving computers. With a direct communication line with the weather team at KELO, EXWX can provide early warnings to alert the public of severe weather and tornado threats and prevent injuries.

A little Water and Sewage Problem

Over this past week I was on the east coast enjoying a much needed vacation, Sioux Falls was getting hammered with rain for a few days. Well over 8” in some parts.

To top it all of we still have residents that connect their sump pumps to the storm drains in the basement, this along with blockage and massive amounts of rainfall a sewer main broke causing sewer backups into peoples basements. The Sioux Falls water treatment has been over capacity and has had to release waste water into the Big Sioux. Yet residents continue to water their lawns, just this morning I saw a business with it’s sprinklers on.  WTF???

The city has asked home and business owners to stop watering their lawns.
The city says this will help reduce the flow of water to the already overtaxed sanitary sewer system.

Despite that signs warning of a biohazard line the shore at Covell Lake, and along the Big Sioux. No boating, no fishing and especially no swimming is allowed.

Yuck what a mess.
