HERMOSA, S.D. (AP) - The southwestern South Dakota town of Hermosa is cleaning up storm damage from an apparent tornado.

National Weather Service reports show the twister hit about 4:30 p.m. Monday, causing structural damage to several homes. Meteorologist Steve Trimarchi tells the Argus Leader newspaper that the damage is “substantial.”

American Red Cross Regional Executive Director Richard Smith tells KELO-TV that the damage is mainly to home roofs and trailers. He’s not aware of any injuries.

About 400 people live in the town south of Rapid City. The weather service was sending a survey team to the town on Tuesday.
