Wow, great video.

Very sure many states will be looking at Michigan and what happened there with this monumental dam breach & flood

Some will be studying what went wrong and why an earthen dam, with an unsatisfactory safety rating, was allowed to go so long without being repaired

Others will look at this with open eyes about what might happen if their states don't attend to their older water retention structures called dams.

And everyone should be looking at the dam breach in Midland as a wake up call that old unsafe dams are a catastrophe waiting to happen.

Those who think it can't happen here... Along the Erie Canal, well that's EXACTLY what the residents of Midland Michigan said as they saw their lives wash away in a moment.
