2nd Dam Breached

The Sanford Dam, downstream from Edenville, breached. 2 Michigan dams breached, thousands evacuated amid flooding.

The evacuations include the towns of Edenville, Sanford and parts of the city of Midland, which has 42,000 people, according to Selina Tisdale, spokeswoman for Midland County.

Water in Midland is expected to be about 9 feet deep.

The Sanford Dam, which was built in 1925, received a fair condition rating.

This story say the Edenville dam was built in 1924, which differs from what I say in the Wiki. Anyway the previous post on these dams is at this link.
