South Dakota 2013 Blizzard & Media Coverage

October 15, 2013

There has been much talk over Twitter regarding the early season blizzard that hit South Dakota on October 4th and 5th, with a large percentage of tweets regarding a lack of media coverage. But in preparing our October 15th newsletter, I found a good amount of national media coverage from the week following the storm:

Friday, October 4th:

Saturday, October 5th:

Monday, October 7th:

Tuesday, October 8th:

Wednesday, October 9th:

Thursday, October 10th:

Friday, October 11th:

This list does not include all the regional papers that covered the story nor the boost it received on October 14th when the disposal pits were opened and the cattle death figure rose. The news has even reached as far as the UK with recent coverage on the Guardian site (from a Wisconsin blogger who stated it’s not being covered in American news.) Coverage of the disaster wasn’t sustained throughout the week, but that could be due to many factors including the current government shutdown and the consolidation of our media industry. –Siobhan Wallace
