Nevada Weather Service Warns Of Dam Failure Threat

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: according to an update posted moments ago by the Nevada Weather Service in Reno, the Flash Flood Warning has been canceled as the water has receded in the Dayton Retention Pond and it is no longer expected to fail.

* * *

It appears another damn dam is failing. After earlier issuing a flash flood warning, Reno Weather Service warned residents "This is not a drill" as County Emergency Managers noted a Dam Retention Pond is full and overflowing into drainages.

The initial tweet from NWS is quite concerning...


But, the good news is that there hjas been no dam failure...

But as NWS notes, the situation could change in the next few  hours.

 At 153 PM PST, the Lyon County Emergency Manager indicated that the  South Dayton Retention Pond is full and overflowing into drainages. 


No failure has occurred and no homes or properties are currently  threatened.

However, the situation could change in the next few  hours.

Pay attention to the latest information from emergency officials and  the National Weather Service in case the water retention pond fails.

Rain continues to fall in Reno...

Coming so soon after the Oroville Dam debacle, local residents are right to be concerned.

I'm confused. The global warmers (who can predict the weather within 1% in a hundred years) told us that this would be a terrible drought year.

My neck of the woods... There is literally nowhere to put snow other than having it trucked out. The moisture content is heavy...these scenerios will not end until Fall. Runoff is severely screwing with all roadwyas... etc...  Long Concrete and asphalt.

Geeebus, ok, I gotta take a victory lap on this manmade global warming crap...

"The award-winning scientist responsible for creating, collecting, and maintaining the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) data archive, John Bates, recently disclosed leading NOAA’s climate scientists violated the agency’s rules, rushing to publication data which had yet to be tested and confirmed in order to influence the outcome of the Paris climate negotiations in 2015."

(Edit: Undoubtedly the Russians, because they are EVERYWHERE, have now infiltrated NOAA to make it look bad.)

"In a second breach of agency protocol, the scientists involved, led by Tom Karl, failed to properly archive and store their datasets for testing and public disclosure."

(Edit: Well, no problem, they can run the tests for peer review and then disclose the results to the public from the backup archive, I mean, the world is hanging in the balance here, all humanity...yes?)

"Subsequently, some of the original datasets were lost when the computer used to process the data suffered a complete failure." lemme see if I got this straight.

You are GIVEN billions of dollars, to research a theory AND preserve quantifiable evidence of cause & effect AND document it to prove to the public (which GAVE YOU billions of dollars of public money to do precisely that through grant & budget) AND you violated existing rules & protocols to preserve it, then, rushed your OPINION before a body of world leaders (backed by the now non-existent evidence) AND now we learn that some of the surviving original datasets, that somehow made it accidentally by your evading standard protocols was also lost, when your multi-million dollar, for one use only, computer crashed.

Was this computer on loan from the IRS stamped with the name of Lois Lerner by any chance? ;-)

This new world of convenient coincidences is remarkable. Too bad their "manufactured" narrative has been broken wide open. Humpty-Dumpty MSM has been exposed and no one can put that Genie back in that bottle! WINNING!

And just think about it, only a year or two ago OBammy was running around the SW like chicken little saying the sky is falling if we don't allow him to tax the living shit out of us for CO2 and...then Trump is elected and...WHAMMO!...the sky really does open up & fall...with rain.

8 years or more, maybe 16 years of infrastructure neglect while Trillions were spent 1) bombing muslim sin the middle east and 2) bailin gout and subsidizing banks and select Wall Street cronies.

Proetsters should be burning Bush, Obama and Hillary and various Congress people in effigy, not Trump.

Trump has a good idea on the infrastructure spending. Concequence is moar debt, but if the failures and lives lost it has to be. Trains are also falling off the tracks. Starting to sound like India.

JRobby's picture

Infrastructure Spending = Income = Taxes 

GDP is the stuck variable, debt rising.

I wish defense spending was as closely scrutinized as infrastructure spending.  Just imagine what we could have built with the $1+ trillion we've used to destroy the middle east.
