A series of tornadoes swept through northwest South Dakota on Monday, causing some damage but no injuries, according to police.
As many as five twisters touched down as the storm system crossed through the state, said Arlen Frankfurth, the police chief of Faith, a small town about 100 miles northeast of Rapid City.
At one point, the storm was bearing down on the rural community before turning and skirting it about 3 p.m.Â (5 p.m. ET), Frankfurth said.
The roof of a barn was ripped off and several local camp sites were damaged, he said, but no injuries were reported.
Much of the state remained under a severe thunderstorm watch or warning Monday night, according to the National Weather Service, which warned that the line of storms moving through the state was capable of producing destructive winds of up to 70 mph.
