US: Thousands evacuated in Michigan after two dams fail

Severe flooding in the US state of Michigan breached two dams, forcing about 10,000 people to evacuate.
The rising floodwaters swallowed entire towns and made bridges collapse, leading some officials to describe the situation as a one in 500-year event.

Al Jazeera’s John Hendren reports from Chicago, US.

    Dear Mr President, I know both myself and my party publicly despise you… and I know it was my Liberal politics that marched my state into financial ruin… But I encourage you to ignore all that corruption and give us the free money we desperately NEED. Sincerely, Democrats.

The 4th word of Genesis in Hebrew is ELOHIM and correctly translates to LOFTY ONES-PLURAL-2536 Times in the O.T…………THAT is what the Bible says.

    USA is crumbling. Everyone for himself has its good points but for building a modern and resilient nation to compete its seems like the Chinese model is winning. Where are the armchair economists to shed some light from their comfortable armchairs! So far all their navel gazing and predictions look well off the target!

    • ed4 all says:

      I am neither a dem or a rep, but what has only this government have to do with the dam failing . Poor infrastructure , whether it be roads , bridges , airports , subways , veteran hospitals etc , has been a worry for many many years now , and governments have come and gone , but nothing has been done . All governments have spent billions on creating wars , going to space etc , but scant regard and funding towards infrastructure, health , education , research . The fault has not been on one government only

      They could start by building democracy here, or at least dams that don’t break.

  • Joseph Thibeault says:

    Mail in ballots = ballots harvesting = fraud.

    • Ian Dalziel says:

      Except in California where it ‘surprisingly’ worked out well for the Republicans – but that Trump seems to know a lot about how these frauds work – could there be a correlation?

    • LadyofCleves65 says:

      @Ian Dalziel He knows what sneaks the Dems are. Anyone with half a brain knows they are liars and cheats.

    • Ian Dalziel says:

      @LadyofCleves65 – Jeez lady you really _have_ lost your head!
      Your perfect ‘president’ just said this _“The fact is, People should want to help people, not to make political points, it’s really sad when they do that.”_ – and within hours had proved he was lying – as he does on a daily basis…
      Why this stubborn need to see only good in Trump/GOP, and only bad in the Democrats? – they are all human why not consider them both equally and individually – otherwise you diminish yourself.

    Know we will see how real this Covid-19 is. Are they evacuating people in mask and 6ft away. Eventually everything just reveals itself. This man made Plandemic………all a setup.

  • Ian Dalziel says:

    Remember this is the same President Trump who said just in the last few days:
    _“The fact is, People should want to help people, not to make political points, it’s really sad when they do that.”_
    Perhaps he should take his own advice…

    This God-forsaken Rust Belt state can’t be beaten down any more than it already has been. America is crumbling in many places at once. It took 39 years of Reaganomics to get us where we are now and the result cannot be reversed in my lifetime or yours. Sometime soon America will look like the Japan of 1945.

  • drinkingpoolwater says:

    WE GOT MONEY FOR WARS BUT NOT OUR LOCAL INFRASTRUCTURE.

  • JVS 3 says:

    And all these country republicans keep voting republican. Tax cuts to the rich, welfare for corporation, government bailouts for big business.. instead of spending on replacing/maintaining infrastructure. Yet even after this they’ll still vote republican because it’s not about their best interest of their future, it’s about being white america, guns n jeezus

    Just like New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. Poor infrastructure and lack of funding.

  • Shahir Showkath Ali says:

    Finally America is finally facing their Karma for creating chaos, murders, stealing from all around the world

    • musicguy20 says:

      Actually this stuff is very common. They all have insurance so it all gets replaced like brand new. Also no one died. It’s not that serious like what’s going on in the Philippines or Bangladesh.

    The American anti China cults and the Government has always been very critical about China’s 3 Gorges Dam for the last 20 years,condemning their instability and structures,in fact,America always criticises others for not doing things to their agreements and liking as if their preference is God’s will and deem superior.American Infrastructures had stagnated since the 80s,yet,Government spend too much money on unwelcome Military interventions and bases,they champion their ways of lives,especially their Democracy but they failed so badly to perform.

  • grospipo20 says:

    Why isn’t this covered by the so called 24 hours news cycle?.

    • Lugubriously says:

      Because it’s detrimental to America’s image. This might be the worst refugee crisis Michigan has ever seen. I was just talking with a friend about dam certification when the one in Edenville broke, he thought folks were worrying too much, I told him dams shouldn’t be unmaintained for a century (seriously no joke they haven’t repaired it since it was built)

    Forget about your election campaign and stop spending trillions on welfare when your infrastructure is having a failure?

  • Katie Did says:

    Simply tRump. Put monies from your new space arm of the military into this country’s infrastructure. Or, let the maga people go shoot the water with automatic weapons ( that’ll show that dam dem water- it’s all a liberal conspiracy, you know….)

    Vote Democratic Michigan it really is doing your state wonders. From tainted water to water falls called dams…… ha ha ha ha

  • Lugubriously says:

    Hey Al Jazeera! Greetings from St.Helen Michigan. I worry about the dam over in Mio.

  • Lugubriously says:

    We have far too many old dams up here in Michigan. I worry for some of the dams in the Keweenaw. Hey yo people worldwide: come to Michigan sometime, we like most folks from anywhere. I’d love to see more immigration to some of the northern backwoods of the state, I really think some folks from the low caucuses would find interesting similarities in our geography. Stay safe y’all; turn around don’t drown.

  • touraneindanke says:

    Democratic hoaxes ?

  • Dave Scott says:

    Trump sent that message before this flooding, don’t try to combine the two for your agenda. Being a Michigan resident, the democrats will not ruin this state anymore, if you can’t walk into a booth to vote, then your vote doesn’t count, pretty simple.

  • Deborah Bell says:

    And President Trump is more interested in visiting an auto Factory where they make ventilators and doing a campaign run rather than even addressed the flooding in Michigan and not even wearing a mask in that factory? Why doesn’t he visit a shelter and wear a mask what do you even wear masks in the shelter where people are evacuated?

The 4th word of Genesis in Hebrew is ELOHIM and correctly translates to LOFTY ONES-PLURAL-2536 Times in the O.T…………THAT is what the Bible says.
