Major Flooding After Michigan Double Dam Break: Dow Chemical Headquarters Under Threat. After a double breach in the US state of Michigan, some 11,000 local residents have been evacuated.
Due to the sudden flood of the water that was behind the dams, the water in the town of Midland can reach 3 meters high this night.
The headquarters of chemical giant Dow Chemical are also under threat.
While it has not rained here for weeks, the water in Michigan has fallen out of the sky with buckets.
So much water has fallen in recent days that two dams on the Tittabawassee River broke down yesterday. First, the Edenville dam broke and later the Sanford dam broke down, which was 10 miles downstream.
Due to the double dam break, the water behind the dams made its way through the Tittabawassee River, but it cannot swallow the sudden influx of the water, flooding the area.
