The Rapidan Dam area is in imminent failure stage.

As of 6:30 this morning, not much has changed at the Rapidan Dam. The water levels upstream have gone down slightly as the river bypasses the dam to the west side. It doesn’t appear that the river will erode anymore of the west side banks, so it seems as if the home is not necessarily in danger of falling into the river. However, the home is more than likely going to unrepairable, as it would take extensive work to rebuild the river bank between the dam and the home. At this time, there is no talk as to what the future holds for the dam. The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Department remains on scene to monitor the situation. We will continue to post any updates throughout the day as the situation continues.
