Article In Last Weeks The Lake Today


Old plug

Recommended Posts

Did anyone read the piece in the paper last week about the disaster drill that for the lake region ? It was about what would happen if We had some very unusual weather and Truman got to high and failed. If they practice drills it must be remotely possible. I seem to recall there was some negative talk when they were building Truman about all the earthen fill that went into the darn because of the capacity. But if it ever did happen it would be something terrible for sure

Yeah last year the camdenton area "heros" got properly geared and trained for the zombie apocalypse too. Laurie even aquired a tactical Hummer that nobody in the area even knows how to change a tire on.

Add to that a 200mph armored Mustang interceptor for a police force with a jurisdiction of 3 miles in any given direction. Totally rediculis. Although I suppose when the opportunity to flirt with the girls at the Break Time convenience store present themselves an officer has to get there pronto.

They are obviously bored and have excess funding as well as embarrassing imaginations. I mean it took all of the personell from 3 counties, plus two helicopters, almost a month to catch a kid on a jet ski.....Yet they "are prepared" for apocalyptic events. Yeah, ok.

LMFAO

Oh I dunno. I wouldn't mind having all those hybrids dumped into LO, and the shoreline scrubbed real good. Maybe relocate ivy bend to down around tan-tar :)

I didn't read the article but now I'm wondering just how a drill/practice goes for stopping a 40 foot wall of water.

According to them the darn would not break sudden it would be more like a surge. I think that is because the darn would crumble and it would result in a slower longer release. yeah I thought of all those hybrids coming down here. I bet though what was left in the shallows up there and did not get out would smell from Kansas to Illinois. After what happened down on table rock last year I am not sure something like they were training for would be possible here.

Does anyone recall what the criticism was when they were building Truman about the dirt fill. I know there was something can not remember.

They are supposed to be Americas best trained engineers, surely they knew what they were doing.

Unless there's a wicked quake I think it'll stay plugged just fine.
