In China severe floods, mud, hail, raise concerns about the Three Gorges Dam

There have been 31 days of rain, leading to mass flooding, mudslides, a few minor earthquakes, and some ominous warnings like in #Chongqing city, where people have been told they need to be “above the third floor” and to prepare for floods that might reach 193m (which does not add up). There is chatter on social media ( and a few news outlets) wondering if the ThreeGorgesDam is about to break.  The chatter has been building for a week and it’s so serious that Chinese government have officially said it’s nonsense.

In the last hours the normal inflow data for the dam has stopped being publicly updated. A glitch maybe.

The Epoch Times is outspokenly anti-communist, connected with the Falun Gong and is banned inside China.
