    MURGENT: Retention basin above East Dayton, NV failing! FLASH FLOOD WARNING UNTIL 6:40PM.  #NVWx #DamFailure


The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a flash flood warning for a dam failure in central Lyon County in west central Nevada.

NWS Reno says at 12:33 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, emergency management reported the imminent failure of the South Dayton Retention Pond in the next 30 minutes to one hour.

Officials say between 2 and 4 feet of water could inundate areas of east Dayton within two to three hours of failure.

The areas affected include east Dayton including the following roads and streets: Comstock, Pottassi, Nugget, Sutro, Rancho, and Dayton Valley Road. 

NWS Reno says “this is an extremely dangerous and life-threatening situation” and advises those in the area to move to higher ground now, though Lyon County officials say there are no homes or property threatened at this time.

There is, however, potential that it could change in the next few hours. 

The flash flood warning is in effect until 6:40 p.m.

Lyon County officials said crews are assessing opportunities to move water to more open areas. SOURCE

The area was already dealing with a Winter Storm Warning. 

According the Reno NWS office, the South Dayton Retention Pond in Central Lyon County, Nevada, could break by 5pm EST. Between two and four feet of water could rush in to the areas of East Dayton Nevada. 

It’s unclear how many people live in the affected areas, but according to a 2010 census, more than 50,000 people reside in the region. 

The NWS is urging people to immediately seek higher ground. 

We’ll continue to monitor the situation in Lyon County, Nevada. Check this site for further developments. SOURCE
