Dam at Mississippi lake ’imminent danger’ of collapsing

A Mississippi dam in Oktibbeha County is on the verge of imminent collapse, and authorities have urged hundreds of residents to evacuate as the region received heavy rains and flash floods. The Oktibbeha County Board has activated an emergency plan which includes the closure of nine highways and the evacuation of 108 structures in the event of a breach.

Those itty-bitty pipes aren't going to move anywhere near enough water volume to reduce that risk. Sounds like the locals haven't evacuated. :(

Time to consider spending money on infrastructure. Maybe use peoples taxes for something useful.
