With heartfelt concern for the Havasu ‘Baaja…

Redland Dam has failed in the Grand Canyon resulting in the evacuation of hundreds of people.

What has been under-reported up to this point is that the flood threatened members of the Havasu ‘Baaja who live on the Havasupai Indian Reservation within the Grand Canyon.

Many positive thoughts and wishes go out to the Havasu ‘Baaja with hopes that your families remain safe and whole and the damage minimal.

Of course they wouldn't be IN danger if the river had never been dammed. Their homes are far enough above flood level that normal rainfall would never be a problem.

It's just that now they have millions of gallons of water backed up over their heads.

Woah! Underreported doesn't even begin to cover it.

Thank you Shark Fu for bringing it to the forefront.
