Interesting weather happenings hit Pine Ridge Indian Reservation



The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, home of the Tanka Bar headquarters, frequently has its share of snow this time of year and today was no different. Well, except for the earthquake.

Around 6:41 a.m. MT, a 3.0 earthquake shook the reservation about 37 miles northwest of Pine Ridge, SD. Donna Looks Twice, sales specialist and customer care at Tanka Bar, felt the quake around 6:30-6:45 am.

"But knowing me, I thought it was a stray dog under my house scratching itself and shaking the house in the process," Donna said with a laugh.

The rest of the team said they didn't feel the earthquake, but our marketing specialist Jason Stover and his brother Eugene, sales specialist and customer care, captured the snow this morning.
