Homes wash away after Missouri dam fails

Unclemick, please tell us you don't live anywhere near here...

Homes, vehicles wash away after Missouri dam fails

LESTERVILLE, Mo. (AP) Water poured through a breach at a hydroelectric plant's rural reservoir in southeast Missouri on Wednesday morning, washing away homes and vehicles, authorities said.

From the article: The plant is in the Ozarks, about 120 miles southwest of St. Louis

I'm pretty sure UM was closer to St. Louis.

UM2 is closer to Kansas City so I imagine he didn't see any water for a change.

Uncle Mick is outside St. Joseph MO, which is in northwestern MO. The dam was located in southeastern MO. Uncle Mick is several hundred miles from the accident.
