  6. The Dank Dev says:

    I live in this part of michigan and I’m like the last dam person to know about it

    • Roger Clemons says:

      @Daniel Lindsay – Good advice. Never donate a dime to the Red Cross. Used to be run by Catholic nuns. But the smell of money in its coffers soon drew in the people who love money. 90% are volunteers but the 10% are over paid, office princesses with big salaries and perks.

    • I have fallen and i can't reach my keg says:

      @Roger Clemons Are you saying i should give “Nun” of my money, to the Red Cost? Just givin’ you the business. Rest, In Peace, Ken Osmond. Did you know, one need not donate/give a damn thing, to a Beaver and that Beaver will build a Dam, regardless. In other words…..you can leave it, to a Beaver or leave nothing, to a Beaver……..

    • Christopher Campbell says:

      I live near Flint. I heard an emergency radio signal that lasted 5 seconds. So much for the emergency service.

    • host of says:

      Daniel Lindsay this isn’t the first time midland has flooded I lived in midland for five years and it flooded 3 times when I lived there, midland Michigan is just so flat haha.

    • Daniel Lindsay says:

      @host of I get ya, y’all get the tornadoes too. We get a bad hurricane sometimes. But the 2016 flood was some bullshit, the storm parked itsself over us and rained for 3 days straight

    Did one of you bully 2020 as a kid or something? Because he pissed!

    Water is like a teenager…. It always takes the path of least resistance.

    • William Swenson says:

      Well, I don’t know. The path of least resistance would be a stationary one. That water, is booking downhill.

  9. woody ahh says:

    They should have fixed that dam along time ago
    Let’s see if they get right this time

    • William Swenson says:

      In fairness, the dam was designed almost a century ago. The repair/replacement will have to take into account the possibility of increased rainfall as time goes on. It won’t be a cheap fix.

    • Dan Mustarde says:

      Who is they? The Corps of Engineers? They haven’t had many dollars in the budget lately for infrastructure maintenance and improvements. Just sayin’

  10. C Tremble says:

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

    • Rexford L says:

      It was a private dam, the owner didn’t want to spend the 83k fixing it to handle water like thus!

    • WTX Railfan says:

      Michigan’s never had good roads because Michiganders have never wanted to pay for them. Same thing with these dams. The dam owner didn’t want to pay for upgrades, and the property owners around the lakes didn’t want to pay either. Nobody wanted to pay. Nobody wanted to take responsibility. Now all those property owners live on a mud canyon. The value of their properties just plummeted. But, hey, they really showed that they weren’t paying for no stinking dam repairs.

    If you have a longer recording, please post the full duration.

  12. Khalid Yousuf says:

    There is also a tiny nuclear research reactor on the site, used to create material that can be used in product experiments. Overnight, Dow filed an “unusual event” report with the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission warning of potential flooding at the site. sources: NYT

  13. Speedy Steve says:

    It lasted almost 100 years.

  14. Mikeom Olt says:

    Locals shocked as dam built from mowed grass cuttings collapsed.

  15. Jack Johnson says:

    Why no film in landscape ffs

  16. Drayton Blackgrove says:

    It’s 2020 and people still don’t realize they can shoot video horizontally.

    • thedeathcake says:

      @Chris of STARS it’s 2020 and people still can’t learn the incredibly easy skill of holding a phone sideways with one hand. It’s like 300-400 grams.

    • Chris of STARS says:

      @thedeathcake Nope. I’m right and you’re wrong and the evidence is all the videos. Ain’t nobody wanna hold their phone that way. CASE CLOSED.

    • Alex Rolli says:

      Madwrestler 145 found another person that shoots video vertically everyone!

    • thedeathcake says:

      @Chris of STARS really? Have you used YouTube? Minus the Flat Earthers and people over 70, I think everyone else had mastered it.

    • Drayton Blackgrove says:

      Madwrestler 145 *You’re

  17. Tim Hick says:

    Probably the most damn anti climatic video I’ve watched in my entire life

  18. ILHG says:

    Ocean mean globe or world !!! Lakes mean states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana !!!
    That’s it !!!

  19. ILHG says:

    Ocean perfect level in 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s
    Ocean rise and over the land in South Florida this year, 2020 too !!!! That’s an unusual too !!!!

  20. JOKER'S DANCE says:

    Every damn time I hear about another dam failure I almost can’t believe my own damn ears! Humans are hardheaded and stupid and will never learn.
