    The last time I was this early Climate Change was called Seasons, Apocalyptic Pandemic was called Flu Season, mayhem and destruction by crowds was called riots and forced Diversity was called an Invasion.

    Ok it wasn't far off, but it doesn't appear to over top the dam.

    Hmmm, right place at the right time? Not like there were any rumbling to give cameraman the clue to come and start filming.

    Strange how they thought that little bit of land would hold all that water.

    Hopefully Michigan can fix all the dam breaches faster than they fix roads

    Looks like some one cut some of the dam away then planted grass on top to cover it up ☠️☠️☠️🤫

    Isn't there usually rocks, cement, or some other very hard substance used in earthen dams to help support the structure? This just looked like dirt.

    EGLE did you hear the screaming of the clams ? Obi Wan Kenobe heard them …."like a million little clam voices all crying out in terror and then were suddenly silenced". Colonel Kurts heard them…."The horror....The horror" …."EGLE you think that if you can just save 1 little clam that you won't here the screaming anymore " ? Even if you overwhelm the dam and cause it to blow ?

    You would think in a state that is one gigantic peninsula they might know a bit about water. Apparently you can't drink it and lakes just up and move.
