A dirt dam will not hold a trillion gallons of water forever. Officials should released water to safer levels but like everyone else would do they refused to monitor the dam.

That pile of sand with grass on it would not be considered a "Dam" here in the Netherlands.

To all the know-it-alls commenting on here, most dams are made of earth. Tree roots weaken dams. The emergency spillway was inadequate, water should have never been allowed to top over the dam. That’s the only thing that caused it to fail. Tops of dams usually are kind of narrow, water is never meant to get that high. At the emergency spillway elevation, the dam is much wider. Dams are built taller than their intended water level to add strength to the structure. Rip-rap (large stones) do not add strength, they simply prevent erosion from wave action.

Landscape mode, people! This video would have been so much better with a landscape orientation allowing us to see the dam, the lake, and the runout. It’s not difficult to do. Our screens on our phones and our tablets and our laptops and our desktops and our TV’s are all designed for landscape viewing. Even our eyes are situated next to each other, not one on top of the other. Turn. The. Phone!

Is there a longer version? Showing more of this incident? ...... No, people quickly tossed cars and trucks and houses, and a few dogs, cats, then chickens in its way and it stopped all the waters at the 1:04 mark on the video. Yeah everybody's saved! Oh crap, a second dam just burst.

Two dams fail at same time in same state...... Anyone else think this is bullshite? Oh I know maybe the guy who's job it is to open up the valves to let the water out didn't think his job was essential and stayed home like the stupid corrupt Michigan governor said to do. I bet she learned her lesson after her house got ruined. lol. Oh wait Im stupid. Rich, corrupt, power hungry governors and rich people always live up on high hills or mountains like the kings of old. The better to see the little people they control. (or see them coming w pitchforks) ;-)-

All farm land owners know Beaver are good dam builders, eh?. Engineers might need to learn some lessons from Beavers. Oh wait, I forgot, beavers have tiiiiny little brains and engineers are wicked smart superior humans. But at least beaver know enough to build secondary dams downstream to equalize water pressure on a primary dam. Oh, and they mix in reinforcement sticks with the mud. Oh, and they do this repeatedly along the course of a river to slow stream current and flooding. And hey! they maintain it nightly and they work for nothing! But beaver are bad you know.......

From the ARTIC thru many lakes and rivers accross Canada down to the USA the water flows all the way down to south america but some stupid humans wants to built dams as to have lakes near where they live. CAN'T YOU JUST LET THE STREAMS RUN DOWN WITH THE EARTH GRAVITY? OR let nature do it's work: BEAVERS

A smart person seeing a berm like that holding back that much water would have said "lets get some concrete and rebar in there"; maybe their plan was to relocate Canadian beavers to do the job??? Apparently there were concerns about this happening for several years and no one took action..........some people (several) need to loose their jobs over this. The number of Lawsuits there will be by home owners and others will cripple Michigan State all because someone didn't pay attention when concern was raised, lives are ruined and it was avoidable and didn't need to happen!!!

2 lakes emptied, 2 dams fail. I hope the people who were ‘supposed’ to take care of preventing these failures are in hiding. Can’t explain these in any normal way.

100% Avoidable if Michigan democRATs would have let the spillway open to release water. This is all on democRATic politicians.
