LSS Disaster Response Activates in Response to Tornado Damage in Wessington Springs

LSS is onsite in Wessington Springs early this morning to provide support and leadership in immediate response to the recent tornado. LSS will be establishing a Volunteer Service Center to respond to immediate needs of those affected by the tornado and coordinate volunteer help. More information will be posted as efforts are organized.

LSS Disaster Response will coordinate volunteers, case management, and spiritual and emotional care. LSS anticipates there will be a need to assist homeowners in their efforts to rebuild. More information will be posted as efforts are organized.

Although LSS Disaster Response is on-site in Wessington Springs, efforts continue in response to flooding in many Southeastern South Dakota communities.

The LSS Affordable Housing properties in North Sioux City are within the potential flood zone. LSS is taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our residents. More information will be posted as available.
