Apparently Mosul Dam, in Iraq, has been unstable for a long time. It has long been branded "the world's most dangerous dam". If the dam were to burst, millions of people would possibly die and Mosul would be submerged under water. Experts have said Mosul Dam is an accident waiting to happen.
An unstable dam is a potential disaster waiting to happen. Steps should be taken to prevent the dam from failing. There are over a million lives that could be lost if the dam collapses. This is a very dire situation and everything and everyone should consider this an emergency before disaster strikes.
Collapse of the eight-mile dam in northern Iraq could lead to as many as 1.5 million casualties and millions of Iraqis without food and electricity. Engineers from the U.S. Army Corps have named the dam "the most dangerous in the world," while one professor at a Swedish University stated that a dam failure would be "worse than throwing a bomb" at the country.
Only one of the two bottom outlet gates is functioning, angrily spitting out water in a foamy white churn as birds fly above the spray.This is the Mosul Dam, considered by some experts among the most dangerous of its kind in the world. Almost 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) long and 371 feet (113 meters) tall, it is Iraq's largest hydroelectric dam, producing power for thousands of homes. There's just one problem: It is built on soft gypsum rock, which is constantly eroding.
