I was very little. I remember trying to leave Rapid City to go home in the country and we were in the backseat of my parents car. We were waiting to cross a bridge and there were cops and lights and a cop came to our car window and said the car in front of the car in front of us had just been washed away with the bridge. The officer said it would be safer to get to higher ground and stay there. So we turned around and went to one of my mom's relatives.
