Kariba dam on the Zambesi River is on verge of collapsing

A hydroelectric dam bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe threatens the lives of 3.5 million people in the southern African region as it is on the verge of collapsing, local newspaper Zambia Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

The wall of Kariba Dam, one of the world’s largest dams measuring 128 meters tall and 579 meters long, has developed weaknesses and may collapse if nothing is done to repair it in the next three years, the report said.

Well as you might have suspected not a whole hell of a lot has been done. In fact a quake has rattled the Kariba Dam.

 

Kariba-Dam

A 4.6 magnitude earthquake has rattled the Kariba dam. On January 16th residents were awakened and jarred for about 15 seconds. As usual reports indicate “everything will be just fine.”

Residents down stream don’t fear just drowning the Zambesi river is full of crocadiles.

They are still “working on” filling the cracks in the dam!

There are many nuclear reactors within the reach of a Yellowstone Super Volcano  eruption. Yellowstone has been showing some unusual signs lately.

 

It gets better, see link below. I am beginning to see how the meek will inherit the earth. They didn’t have the resources to build nuclear plants below giant dams.
