    Lake Delhi Dam Compromised

    Lake Delhi Dam Has Been Compromised Due To High Water | KCRG-TV9 | Cedar Rapids, Iowa News, Sports, and Weather | Local News

    This is a pretty ****** deal, especially with the county fair down river in Monticello.

    I had the same thought last night. When/if it does reach Monticello I know that the golf course has the potential to be submerged underwater which is most of the parking for fair goers. However, I don't know how the water could get to the stage if that were to happen.

    Re: Lake Delhi Dam Compromised

    How close is this to the actual fairgrounds? My son is leaving this am for their annual trip to "geezer rock @ Jones County fair outing". Suppose to see Styx, Joan Jett and Grand Funk Railroad tonight. I have heard of an "upper level of the fairgrounds" and a "lower level". Anyone know anything about this? Thanks.

    Emergency management officials are now reporting that the Lake Delhi dam has failed and water is going over the berm alongside it.

    Re: Lake Delhi Dam Compromised

    A friend of mine is at his cabin on Lake Delhi and said he saw a house on the back side of the dam literally split in half and fall into the water. Crazy stuff.
