A specialist with the South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service said important information for South Dakotans facing flooding is now available online as audio files.
Kim Cassel, an Extension specialist who works with the Extension Disaster Education Network, or EDEN, said the audio files are very useful for people preparing for possible flooding impacts this spring.
"Experts from across the U.S. have faced flooding before and we have compiled great information from our sources through EDEN," Cassel said. "The files in the 'First Steps to Flood Recovery' touch on many topics from salvaging belongings to care of livestock, pets, and families."
The files are available on the national Extension Service Web page at this link: http://www.extension.org/pages/Extension_Disaster_Education_Network_Floods. In the right column on the page, click on "Video and Audio Files on preparedness and recovery" choice to access the information.
Cassel said South Dakota State University, in cooperation with Purdue University, produced the "First Steps to Flood Recovery" information and that printed copies will soon be available at Extension offices across South Dakota.
