Dam failure 'imminent' in Puerto Rico after Maria, thousands urged to evacuate | 23 Sept 2017 | Fears in storm-battered Puerto Rico have shifted to a failing dam as the U.S. territory reels from the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria. Early Saturday morning, the National Weather Service said failure of the Guajataca Dam in northwest Puerto Rico is "imminent" and could cause "life-threatening flash flooding" downstream on the the Guajataca River. Dam operators said it began to show signs of failing, causing flash flooding, on Friday around 2:10 p.m. ET. "Move to higher ground now," the National Weather Service urged residents in the area. "This is an extremely dangerous and life-threatening situation."
