Tempe Town Lake:Tempe Town Lake has become a great danger to residents of the city as rubber bladders that stopped the flow of water and poured water started coming out of the dam with a speed of fifteen thousand cubic meters per second, this amount of water is too much and went with great speed. The portion of the dam that burst, sixteen feet high and was near the University of Arizona. Authorities said no buildings were entered in danger and no injuries or deaths have been reported to them.
People who witnessed the event state that there was a sudden loud noise was followed by leaking water, the dry bed of the Salt River was filled with water and the animals that were present in the path of the waters began to flee with fear. Just as the Tempe Town Lake began to shed the police and rescue officials rushed to the river bed to alert persons who may be camping in the riverbed, as people often do this in the summer season . Without these people were heard to be harmed, but chances are that some might have drowned in the water and their bodies could be found after some time.
Authorities said the Tempe Town Lake will continue to dispense the water until today. The officials were asked about the sudden explosion of the bladders and workers who said they intended to replace the bladder, but could not do so as a result of floods in winter.
