Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, March 10, 2020

Max Armstrong talks about supermoon, central South Dakota farmer rescued from grain bin and more.

Where the skies are clear over are region you may have noticed a SuperMoon. SuperMoons are when the moon is within 90% of its closest approach to Earth. The part of its orbit where it's at its closest is called perigee. If you missed this one, there will be two more: April 7 and May 7.

A central South Dakota farmer continues to recuperate from grain bin accident. He got out alive. First Responders from four agencies worked for 6 hours to get him out of bin where he had been trapped up to his chest. They tried using one of those rescue tubes designed specifically for grain bin rescues, but in this case, they couldn't make it work. Five holes were carefully cut in bin to get the corn out and free the man. Less than a month ago in another South Dakota grain bin, a young farmer died, leaving behind wife and three children.
