Default Couple Dam pictures

Headed down to Branson for a couple hours. Mainly I wanted to see the Dam releasing water. Only the 3rd time I can recall them doing it. 2nd time was just about 3 weeks ago.

All ten gates were open. Not sure the amount of water coming out.

Truck looks good! I imagine it was quite loud there too.

No this is only the 3rd time I can recall it being open. Been alive for 29 years.

They only open it when the lake is 935ft or higher. Hear with all this rain they have had to open it. When it was opened a few weeks ago the lake was 970is ft

Of course it is awesome to see, how ever the community down below is not pretty to see.

I'm not an expert on property laws, but doesn't the government have to pay the residents of communities wiped out by intentional floods? It's kinda like them taking the property for a highway project. Or is it one of those cases of "Ha, you live in a flood prone area, and you knew the consequences."?

If you buy property in a designated flood zone you're required to have food insurance, which is the only way you're covered for flood damage. Standard Hazard insurance does not cover flood damage. But like Mykhael mentioned, it's only risen three times in his 29 years, so how many people knew to carry the extra insurance if it wasn't a requirement.

Makes sense. Raw deal, but I guess they should have had it on their minds at all times.
