This shit goes in cycles. We had 2 of the largest wet years on record where I live now suddenly it's all dry. Lake Michigan was just near record lows in 2013 now it's at record highs. Weather really isn't getting more extreme, it's always gone through cycles like this. People just have short memories.

If this were to happen it would overshadow all other events in 2020 thus far. The global implications of this event are mind blowing.

Also, I heard that the dam pylons aren't even connected to the bedrock? Apparently the chinese company hired to do the job cut massive cormers in the concrete pouring, the welding and they didn't connect the pylons to the bedrock in order to save cost.

I guess they were just hoping the weight of the pylons would keep them in place... lol obviously the pylons have water seeping underneath them and causing these massive structures to move and warp.

People, don't cut corners when building a damn dam!

if the CCP doesn't evacuate the flood zone, we could be looking at 10-100 million deaths

China lied and THEIR OWN PEOPLE died :(

Some of the most beautiful places in China were flooded to make that dam.

That said, now that it is there I wish them all the best. The poster above is correct: a failure of 3 gorges would be an almost unimaginable humanitarian tragedy.

This thread should be pinned.

If the message gets out it is possible that people's lives can be saved through evacuation.

We all know the CCP won't ever put human life first. They are just hoping for the dam to keep working through the flood season, and if it doesn't they will probably blame some other country and just write off the tens of millions who will die.

When this historical level of flooding occurs it puts weight on the tectonic plates. They are at a high risk of an 8.0+ quake, which on top of the already warped dam and historic flooding would definitely cause a dam failure.

If you have family in the flood zone of the Yangtze PLEASE WARN THEM NOW so they can evacuate!

I have a lot of friends in China and also watch the news in China everyday. I do a lot of work in China as well. I am a civil engineer and my specialty is water retaining structures.

If it were me, living anywhere near the vicinity of the flood water fail zone, I would get the hell out, NOW! There was one a couple years ago which failed. I believe 230,000 people died in that dam failure, but it not really talked about.

I wouldn't even venture to know how to fix this impending failure. There is no underpinning of the bridge foundation. If minor fluctuations in headpressure are moving the dam, and have moved the dam, open the flood gates and let as much water go as possible. Another dam will have to be built, but how?

If you build downstream, any breech in the dam would destroy the new structure. I would not even want to know what they did with the original water diversion channels after the dam was complete.

Most dams are curved for a reason. I never understood how a straight dam, without any opposing counter force to the rising water, was ever going to work long term. Well, here you go!

However you want to look at it, not good.

"...the upper reaches of the Three Gorges Dam are seeing the highest flood levels since 1940. Weather China has issued its highest warning for flooding and rain for the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River to Guizhou.

The rainfall is expected to peak on Tuesday and Wednesday (June 23 and 24)..."


[link to www.taiwannews.com.tw (secure)]

It appears that the Three Gorges Dam is going to get it's first massive structural test later this week as all that rain finally reaches the impoundment basin of the Three Gorges Dam.

The Dam has already apparently been "bending" in the middle, though the Chinese say it is only by a few millimeters ... and that was occuring PRIOR to this 80 year record rainfall /flood event!!

Because of everything happening in the US and in Europe wrt CV19 AND the protests (in both places) this China Flooding event has gotten scant news coverage, but may actually be the biggest current news event.

Some additional footage

More rain expected. I think this will get worse before it gets better.

Think Oroville on a much larger scale.

There is an old "prophesy" /"vision" from years ago that the Three Gorges Dam fails when an earthquake hits it.There are major faults near the dam, I never paid much attention to the issue, but I do know it is located in an earthquake prone area.

With the additional weight of the all the extra water from the floods stored in the impoundment lake above the dam the risk of an earthquake near the dam is real (as I recall several small quakes did happen as they filled the impoundment lake).

As I stated above these rains and floods may actually be the most important news of the moment because of the risks involved for hundreds of millions of people.

OP, thank you for starting this thread!!
