I just can’t believe how stupid some people are. They lived below a dam. They should have know that if the dam breaks they might all be washed away.
A wall of water is rushing down the Black River in Reynolds County south of the Upper Taum Sauk Lake Dam after the dam failed.
A fire dispatcher in Lesterville tells News 4 that crews released water from the reservoiraum Sa but apparently failed to open the dam. The dispatcher says that the pressure from the added water caused the dam to fail, sending a wall of water thundering down the Black River.
There are reports that the flash flooding has washed away several homes. The bridge at Highway N has been washed away. A tractor-trailer on Highway N was reportedly washed away. There unconfirmed reports that some residents are missing.
Marty Elmore with the Missouri Highway Patrol tells News 4 that residents who live along the river south of the dam are in peril.
The National Weather Service says that water levels along the river will rise 20 feet in a matter of minutes.
What morons would live where they might be flooded by a dam break? And why did they let people live there. I hope the federal government doesn’t give them a single penny. There were worries about this in the past but they still let those people live there. They should make all those people move.
