Water is a powerful mother and our dams do all their might in trying to control it but sometimes they need to pump some of that out. This is them doing that in the video. Or well, that’s what the dam is trying to do. The floodwater looks more like it’s exploding away.
The AP writes, “The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released flood water at a rate of 13,000 cubic feet per second at the Tenkiller Lake Dam in Oklahoma after historic levels of flooding have affected the region.”
