PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota officials have temporarily closed the Farm Island Recreation Area along the Missouri River near Pierre.

A strong storm that moved through the area Sunday night left down trees and knocked out power to the park.

The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department says the recreation area will reopen as soon as the park is cleaned up.

Officials say campers with reservations have been notified of the closure.
