Millions of cubic metres of flood water erupts from Taiwan’s Shihmen Dam like a Dominique Strauss-Kahn orgasm

When floodwater from super typhoon Dujuan left a dam perilously close to overflowing, officials decided to pull the plug and this is what happened

When a dam in the Taiwanese city of Taoyuan was threatening to spill over, officials staged an intervention, releasing a huge amount of water into the creek below.

The water level at the dam was around six feet from the maximum capacity and the video shows an estimated 30 million cubic metres of water being released in just under two minutes.

The water release was triggered by a huge amount of floodwater which had entered the reservoir following super typhoon Dujuan, which hit Taiwan on Tuesday.

According to Wikipedia the Shihmen Dam holds Taiwan’s third largest reservoir and supplies water to over three million people in northern Taiwan.

The video shows the sheer power of such a huge amount of water (approximately 10 tonnes) being released into the creek below.
