    Don't think this is really the big one but water does spill over the dam on this AM.

    Here's a few more with this water coming from the recent typhoon that just crossed here. This water is just a little higher than the pics above but well below the water that was in this river the night before when the rains first hit here. Still hoping to see some white water gushing over the top instead of that flow-over, smooth trickle...

    My 08 WR250 on display here :)

    Here's the down stream view and I'm still not sure what that cement structure is on the right side is all about.

    Not sure what the square hole on the right, lower side of the dam is but it looks manmade and not just a blown-out chunk.

    Christmas Day 2019 -- A ~big one, Ursula, came across the islands

    There was an effort made here to get the high-water mark on this day at this newly built dam and a new high-mark was obtained but no where the top mark of these waters caused by this storm.

    This 08 WR250 Husky just fits in perfectly here with the knobbies and mud all over it...

    Got a little white-water action here but a few hrs hours earlier, it would have been much more...All along these banks are signs of running water, meaning this entire bank was under water

    Usually, always, a few fisherman around.

    Those little spots on the water are a net marker.

    Using the coconut shell as a marker, probably everything here except that top angle-iron was underwater.

    A little washing happening here

    JAN 2020 -- Bigger, but not the big one just yet; just been too late on scene

    You can see the dirt is washing across these rocks here.

    Here's the top side and looks like the idea is for a reservoir

    This really shows how much water is running around the dam and down this road before it re-joins the river.

    You can see how high the water is gonna be to run around the dam on the left side here. I thought every thing but that top angle-iron was gonna be covered in water but not sure now but water is gonna be up-there. That is what I call big-water.
