The attached interview above is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment.

The 50th anniversary of the Black Hills Flood of 1972 on June 9th is a time to honor the 238 lives lost. It also brings a flood of memories for survivors. Some of those survivors are telling their stories to SDPB. Every week between now and the anniversary, we’ll bring you one of those stories.

This week, we hear from Warren Nelson. He had just finished a day of training at Camp Rapid with the National Guard when that training was interrupted.

An SDPB documentary about the 1972 flood is in production now. Stay tuned for information about that this spring.
