Water is a powerful motherf****r and our dams are there to control all that might. But sometimes they need to pump some of that water out. This is them doing that in the video. Or well, that’s what the dam is trying to do. The floodwater looks more like it’s exploding away.

The AP writes, “The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released flood water at a rate of 13,000 cubic feet per second at the Tenkiller Lake Dam in Oklahoma after historic levels of flooding have affected the region.”
