PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley and South Dakota’s Department of Public Safety are urging tornado victims in Delmont to be wary of shady contractors as they begin the recovery process.

Officials say people who need repair work done quickly following a disaster often are targets of unscrupulous business practices.

Jackley says most contractors are legitimate, but there are some who will seek to take advantage of a tragic situation. He says Delmont residents should take necessary steps to evaluate a bidder before contracting for a job, and avoid transient contractors.

The Sunday tornado damaged at least 84 structures in and around Delmont.
