Recovery two years after the Cottonwood Fire
Today’s Video of the Day from the U.S. Geological Survey shows the recovery of grassland in western South Dakota that was consumed by fire two years ago.
On October 16, 2018, the Cottonwood Fire burned over 41,000 acres in two days.
Igniting just north of the Badlands National Park, the fire was fueled by low humidity, intense winds, and high temperatures
