Default The dam that holds Lake Abanakee back is eroding

INDIAN LAKE -- The dam that holds Lake Abanakee back is eroding and emergency officials in the region are preparing for a possible failure by putting fire departments on standby along the Hudson River.

The 4.5 mile-long lake crested the dam in Indian Lake on Wednesday. Abanakee’s swollen waters began eroding the side walls of the structure, leading to fears that it could give way dumping millions of gallons into the already historically-high Hudson River.

According to North Creek Fire Chief Steve Studnicky, state officials are predicting the wall of water would innundate the Johnsburg hamlet of North River in just 17 minutes following a breach.

Fire crews along the Hudson are being put on standby at their stations in case they are needed for evacuations or other emergency response. North Creek, Hudson Falls, Fort Edward and South Glens Falls have all been put on standby.

By the sounds, if the dam fails and your on the Hudson, you may just end up in the ocean.
Be one hell of a ride
