Dam Fails in Central Michigan; Evacuations Underway

Sharing is Caring!


Residents in two central Michigan towns were told to evacuate immediately Tuesday evening after floodwaters caused a dam to fail.

Emergency officials in Midland County, about 150 miles north of Detroit, had earlier warned residents along Wixom and Sanford lakes that the Edenville Dam was in danger of failure. They told residents to leave immediately around 6:15 p.m. EDT when the dam could no longer hold back the water flowing through its flood gates.
