As Bret approached the coast, forecasters feared the hurricane would strike the city, but the storm turned west and came ashore in sparsely populated Kenedy County the early evening of August 22.

April 25, 1994:

Lightning from a thunderstorm 4 miles W of Aberdeen struck two houses, causing structural damage and starting a fire which caused further damage to one house. The second house suffered damage only to a surge protector. Total damage was estimated at $50,000 for both strikes.

April 25, 1996:

An intense area of low pressure brought high winds of 30 to 50 mph with isolated gusts to 80 mph to central and north central South Dakota from the morning to the evening of the 25th. The dry April soil was picked up by the high winds, lowering visibilities in blowing dust. Some places experienced duststorm conditions with low visibilities and drifting dust. Many roofs lost shingles due to the high winds. In Eagle Butte, the Vietnam Veterans Center roof was blown off. Other buildings were also damaged across the area, along with some broken windows. Some power poles and lines were downed west of Fort Pierre. Some trees and branches were also downed. Near Isabel, a cattle trailer was tipped over and two calf shelters were destroyed. Also, a twenty foot Conoco sign was blown down near Isabel along with other signs damaged across the area. The duststorm reminded many of the 1930s. Some wind gusts include, 60 mph at Mobridge and Selby, 70 mph at Miller, Pierre, and Murdo, and 80 mph at Isabel and Eagle Butte.
