Propane Runs Low in Indian County

Jan 29, 2014

The nation wide propane shortage is hitting many hard especially in rural America.   The Red Cross is assisting the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in opening disaster shelters for residents who are without heat in subzero temperatures.

The cold winter has increased the consumption of propane – leading to the shortage.  Residents in isolated areas often heat with propane—including those in Indian Country. 

Many rural homes across South Dakota rely on propane as their main heating fuel.
