Gov. Noem forms mitigation team

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has formed a mitigation team that will attempt to head off damage from the next disaster.

Noem says it will involve many state agencies.

Noem says rebuilding damaged infrastructure to previous standards doesn’t help the next time.

Fifty-eight of the states counties have been included in at least one disaster declaration this year.
