  • Arnett Dennis Rapid City, South Dakota

Abstract

Rapid City, South Dakota is built along the banks of Rapid Creek, where it emerges from the eastern side of the Black Hills. In 1972 its population was approximately 60,000. On the night of June 9-10 of that year, torrential rain upstream of Rapid City caused the creek to overflow its banks and devastate adjacent areas of the city.
