Stuff is being flung every direction on that feed. The chaos is alarming to watch.
I was thinking it was raining even now... for a few seconds it looked pretty obvious that the camera lens was wet. Then the feed paused... still paused now, a minute later... ahh now it is working again and the sun is coming up (although looks very cloudy). The side angle is black, but audio works.

Now running for Emperor.
I got a report the dam collapsed already, but no confirmation. We got another 24 hours at least of intense rain.
It dawned on me when Mr. Prostate got me up at 3am, :hof: the dam status, collapse isn't really the issue now.
Whatever happens with 3 gorge dam now is almost secondary. China now faces FAMINE. Think on that, chew on that for a while. Tens of millions of Chinese, especially the 500 million seniors, are going to start dying as there will be minimal food over the next two years at least. This years rice crop is GONE.
Invade Vietnam for it, Thailand? Taiwan? All the dice are in play, but the game is rigged. The ONE thing that will take the Marxists down is famine
Add the fact that their "Strategic Grain Silos" have been mismanaged into oblivion, and apparently, don't actually contain any viable grain... It would appear that China is well-and-truly honked.

Communism wins again.

No images on either spillway or side views, as well as nothing on Wuhan.

a Wuhan link I found on one of the pages... seems to be working, showing the bridge into town across the river... click on one of the links below, and you can get it on youtube...
From that link
The river in the livestream is the Yangtze River, upstream on the right and downstream on the left.The location of the camera is Wuchang District, Wuhan city. The bridge is Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, which was built in 1957 with the aid of the former USSR.bridge is double deck, with two-way four lane bridge and Beijing Guangzhou railway below There are no floods in Wuhan. I'm sorry to disappoint the rumorer lol

The "spillway" view would not, I think, show us anything even if the dam HAD partially collapsed (I say, PARTIALLY--not a full, tidal-wave-incoming! type of collapse) BECAUSE for some odd reason they have the camera for the spillway almost down IN the water---it's AT water level. And the microphone for it is apparently UNDER water, judging by the sound.

So how you can SEE what's happening higher-up, with the camera almost IN the water?

It is VERY suspicious to me that --

FIRST, they point a bright light near the powerhouse TOWARD the side-view camera, to mess up its ability to focus

SECOND, they turn if OFF entirely....


If there is nothing to hide, then..........????

Sure, but the youtube post is current... watch the traffic on the bridge and see if it repeats...
DannyBoy, the feed is no longer available...

Thanks for all you do, btw...

This would be the whole goal of destroying everything else is to save a few select cities, namely Wuhan. If we see floods here than it's all gone to pot. I would not expect floods in Wuhan during this process personally.

Thank you for sharing the directions though! It will be interesting to view as time goes on!

Nice insight and good information, but whatever you do DON'T SPOIL OUR DOOM! Are you certain that this is a new livestream and not an old livestream? How much faith and trust do you have in the CCP? We have not seen skittles flying out of Xi's ass yet.

I think you are right... now the feed has some message up in Chinese which I can not read... maybe there is a way to translate it?

At least from the spillway angle you can see that the dam is still standing... now it may be leaking over, under, around, and through, but it is certainly still there. Of course, also assuming it is not a fake feed. But I think it is legit, the clock has kept good time, and the sun has been rising around the same time each day. As said before, I think it might have been raining early in the morning. Looks like the sun is out now.

My father worked many many days a year In the mid-70’s through the mid-80’s at a grain exporter out of Long Beach CA. Koppel or Kopel was the company name.

I never worked the operation, I just recall the big grain bulk carrier rail cars. Dad’s job was lining up the car by radio instructions to the pusher, and ripping on the scissor mechanism that opened a hopper hatch of some sort to a hopper below.

I don’t know how it was loaded further to the vessels. Just before my time down there, and the operations moved north later IIRC.

If 0 or the other A team progressives were running the show in 2020+, we’d be shipping EVERYTHING consumable to China.

As Desert Vet recommends, arm up and train like you know you will be facing the most ruthless invaders.

Forget wasp spray and BLM or antifa*’s. Go full bore; or as dad’s middle school friend from 1934 would later say... “Go for broke.”

"Rumors Of Structural Faults " - China's Three Gorges Dam Could Be Nearing collapse
by Tyler Durden
Thu, 07/30/2020 - 21:40
Concerns are rising that China's Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest dam, could be on the verge of collapse triggering a devastating 250-foot tidal wave that would wipe out cities, reported The Sun.

A major concern, after several weeks of raging floodwaters rushing through the dam at 60,000 cubic meters per second, is that part of the structure has shifted under enormous pressure, potentially jeopardizing the structural integrity of the dam.
Rumors of structural faults in the walls of the 14-year-old dam have grown as heavy rains deluged the swollen Yangtze River.
China's secretive leaders - already facing a backlash over the Covid-19 pandemic which started in Wuhan in Hubei Province - have played down the threat.
But authorities are said to have quietly ordered the evacuation of 38 million Chinese in the threatened zone - equating to more than half the population of the UK.
Heavy rainfall is forecast to continue to pound the Yangtze River basin in the coming days after localized floods claimed at least 141 lives. - The Sun
Dam operators, quoted by local media, said there are two weeks before reservoirs around the dam reach maximum level. Floodgates were used earlier this week to discharge excess water but still not enough to lower water levels.

China's state-run Global Times quoted a local official that said the structure is "safe and in good condition."

CONFIRMED: The CCP put up posters in Beijing instructing people to go to underground bunkers if the alarm goes off signaling they are at war.

The poster reads: "How to quickly enter the wartime civil air defense facility after you hear the alarm"

A CGI video published on Twitter showed a potential scenario of the dam collapse, would flood cities along the Yangtze River.

Side view back up---but they've most definitely CHANGED some things.

Have zoomed BACK OUT from the dam, so you get less of a close-up picture of the water coming out (and any debris that might be coming out with it) but a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and the face of the dam:

And, it looks like the Wuhan camera is working again... complete with tow boat pushing a barge under the bridge!

That is pretty darn muddy water. and if you look close under the red stripe (from my screen grab), there is something that looks like it should not be submerged, like maybe a park walk or something?

I've worked for Chinese people who treated me very well. This a terrible thing happening to real people who live hard lives already.
The people I will pray for. The despotic regime I will curse. China represents the single largest existential threat to our Liberty and the preservation of our (under fire) Not-So United States. Their perfidy has caused untold suffering around the world:

* They intentionally or negligently released COVID19.
* Before they released it, they altered it and weaponized it.
* They KNEW, it had escaped their Level IV lab in Wuhan, but REFUSED TO ALERT THE WORLD TO THE PERIL IT CREATED.
* They then send thousands of Wuhan "vacationers" AROUND THE WORLD TO VECTOR THE CONTAGION EVERYWHERE.
* They consistently LIED about every aspect of the plague; REFUSED to accept proffered US specialists to assist in prevention of contagion.
* They "soaked" the entire flipping world for every YUAN/DOLLAR they could for relief efforts.
* They provided their own "relief" via PPE which (a) they charged foreign governments top price for and b) WHICH WERE DEFECTIVE AND THUS COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE. [I'll stop there, but THERE'S SO MUCH MORE.]

THAT'S JUST WUHAN AND COVID 19


* They have engaged in a DECADES LONG CAMPAIGN OF INTELLECTUAL THEFT, ESPIONAGE, AND FORGERIES AND RIP OFFS OF EVERY NEW AND USEFUL TECH THEY COULD STEAL
* They have consistently spied on our nation.
* They have fomented WARS AND SUPPORTED CIVIL INSURRECTION.
* They have turned the entire cell phone/electronics industry into a data gathering and spying nightmare.
* They have suborned our press; bought treason from innumerable public officials, and sent WEAPONS and financial support to our enemies FOREIGN & DOMESTIC.

I COULD GO ON FOR DAYS. I CALL UPON THE ALMIGHTY GOD OF OUR FATHERS TO MAKE BARE HIS ARM TO ALL THE NATIONS AND BRING JUSTICE FOR THE MYRIAD SOULS AROUND THE WORLD WHO HAVE SUFFERED BECAUSE OF THE TREACHERY, EVIL, AND DECEIT OF THE DESPOTIC RULERS OF THIS DAMNED NATION AND ITS ENSLAVED PEOPLES.

"Let the Waters Flow" and cleanse an evil land which intends to rule not merely our nation but our world with blood and horror.

I wonder just how much of the city is already several feet deep from the flooding. No way to tell from the great photo capture you did, DannyBoy. Likewise, without an overhead view, we can't really see the extent of flooding, or where depressions are. If the levees have been topped or breached, in view or upriver already, Wuhan is toast... Don't know local time photo was captured, but seems like traffic is rather sparse. Is it moving? Or, is it stopped, with abandonedd vehicles? Is the cause of lack of traffic due to flooding on one side of the river?

Inquiring minds want to know...

Thanks, DannyBoy!

Not to get woo, but John Hogue mentioned on Coast to Coast that the old warehouse district in Wuhan had been made into a park next to the river that everyone calls "The Sloping Park."

I gather it provided a beautiful place for people to walk with walkways and viewing areas, it was the most popular area in Wuhan (per John's friends in China) for socializing or just taking a break from the office.

It is almost certainly what is underwater now, as it was the riverside, a lot of towns and cities prone to flooding do this - San Luis Obispo CA, did something similar after a huge flood that nearly destroyed the downtown area. The took down all the buildings (paid off the owners) and just made the entire large creekbed into parks, walkways and platforms.

This is not looking good for this dam, again it might stay standing and still be so damaged it will be a disaster waiting to happen as long as they don't totally drain the river and basically rebuild the thing (or take it down).

I am thinking it is real time still... the traffic is moving, as are the ships or towboats (probably are freighters). This time there are two. Both going upstream, one above the bridge and one below... pretty cool view at night actually. You are right, it would be good to know how much of the area really is flooded, especially in the foreground. Nothing will show at night.

Something interesting to note... while I was watching the video, someone was playing with the filters... possibly trying to make the river look less muddy? See below how it changed. That was over a couple minutes time.

Also of note, from an old river boater/traveler, it is very interesting how deep the river is all the way across. The channel includes the near side second section all the way across to the second or third section from the far side. Very wide right now. I know that because all these freighters have been going under the bridge in all those sections. Might mean nothing, might mean deep water because of a flood right now.

Hmmm. They changed the view on the link I have been using for days. I've seen this view before. It's turned really reddish muddy looking. Before it was more greenish.

I think they changed the view as well, but I think it is mostly camera brightness... those streetlights were there a few nights ago, but you could not see anything other than the light glare for a couple nights. Might have just backed out as Countrymouse was thinking. that helped with the night view for sure, at least now you can see the water from the spillways... does anyone have a number on how wide the spillway itself really is? maybe a couple thousand feet? I know the whole dam is 2+ kilometres, but not sure where that starts and ends. Looks to me like many of them are open...

Assyrians were a evil awful group of people and were used to give Israel a little correction.
If you know history not even biblical history you know what the Assyrians did to the nation of Israel when it turned its back on God.
SO....
How about this; China used to correct the US or give the US a little spanking... to get our people or our nation to turn back to God? Basically giving another chance to back .

OK, just realized something... I was wrong about filters changing...

the whole riverfront is a light show... the first four buildings on the left are part of it, as are many of the large buildings on the right... if you watch the view, you can see them changing, along with a couple more further back... the entire shore colors are changing. Purple, blue, reddish, etc. also note the color of the bridge way off in the distance over Wuhan, it is now blue, compared to pics above. Very cool. I do not expect that the water front there is flooded, that must be high ground.

Does that look like water coming over the top too?

Water coming over the top would be unmistakable. The "last chance" floodgates which we've never seen open, will send water down the face of the dam. It would be water visibly flowing with lots more spray then we're seeing at the bottom because the spillway at the bottom will kick water from the top gates up at a steeper angle than we see from the main gates.

Top gates as seen from the lake side of the dam when 3 Gorges was test-filled after completion.
