🚨New satellite images show the #ThreeGorgesDam has been deteriorating progressively since 2012.

More images and links in the thread below, but first a slideshow showing the progress of deformation over time. I've highlighted 3 points where it is most obvious.

It should be noted that the deformation is exaggerated by Google Earth as it computes a 3D model from different images. This is the original 2020 image in 2D without such distortion. It was taken on 9th July 2020.
Here is the link to the image above. Take a look around and see if you can find similar distortion on any other straight-line structure or road.…

💥‼️ALERT‼️💥 #ThreeGorgesDam. I have a theory. 1. The dam is approaching imminent catastrophic failure.

2. The CCP plans to blame the US and possibly use it as an excuse to go to war. (Can they be so stupid?!)

Evidence Below ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Evidence for suspected failure.

➡️ The dam is experiencing it's 7th flood wave this year NOW.

➡️ The flood season is not even 25% complete yet for 2020 and the CCP is reporting levels to be approaching maximum. (160/180m)

➡️ CCP reports that the dam has deformed in the past
Evidence for failure cont'd

➡️ Floods in China are at record all time high. Dam under extreme pressure.

➡️ The eyes of the world have been watching the livestreams of the da

➡️ A few weeks ago, the dam hit 175m and the livestreams remained up, full view of all sides and angles

🚨New satellite images show problems developing with the #ThreeGorgesDam at a rapid pace.

Livestream video feeds have been turned off over the last few days and this might be why.

Thread 👇👇👇

(Thanks to @paul_furber for his input on this) #BigDickAnon

First, If you're not familiar with the world's biggest dam this is a good place to start:

Note the huge red mobile cranes on the top which are about three stories high.

The lower ones are a little smaller, but pay attention to the horizontal wall behind them and in front of the spillway water discharge. We'll come back to that.

⚠️Corroborating Evidence that the #ThreeGorgesDam is badly deformed and likely to fail, possibly killing millions who are unaware of the risks.

Satellite images can be distorted and this is what the #CCP have claimed, only admitting to displacement of a few centimetres

Thread👇 Image
Google is alleged to be colluding with the Chinese Communist Party by removing its current image and replacing it with an older one showing the Dam when it was new and straight.

The upper image is the one allegedly removed, while the lower is the current one from Apple Maps Image
This is the current image on Google maps, however it is evidently much older and taken when construction was nearly complete. The island near the top left is still under construction, while more recent photos show it finished with park land then more recently, submerged. #Busted Image

🚨Worried about the world's biggest dam #ThreeGorgesDam failing?

Take a look upstream at China's 2nd largest dam #XiluoduDam 😲#三峡大坝

This is a 2020 image and it looks like work has taken place in an attempt to buttress it.

#ThreeGorgesDamRisks… Image
This thing is HUGE! At around 940 ft high and 700m wide, it holds back 12,670,000,000 cubic metres of water in a 200 km long reservoir.

(Note: This image looks like CGI, but gives a good sense of scale) #Chinaflooding
#三峡大坝 #三峽大壩 #三峡ダム #三峡 #三峡水库 #大坝 Image
China has a long history of corruption leading to poor construction standards and failure of capital projects.

The consistency and accurate pouring of concrete should be tightly controlled in such projects. This site looks to be shoddy, dirty and unkempt #XiluoduDam Image

1/ Hot off the press: The Yangtze River No. 3 flood is raging at 60,000 cubic meters per second straight to the Three Gorges Dam.

G-Translate of this page… Image
2/ With so much more rain coming, I'll keep my eyes on when the Flood#4 may arrive. And here is the latest update on #ThreeGorgesDam ; we need to monitor how high water level may this Flood#3 push #3GD up to Image
This following image is from today China's official Yangtze & #3GD water situation report. Go back to my recent tweet of explaining how to read this graph, you can see how much water level can go up when a major flood arrives.

#ChinaFloods #3GD #ThreeGorgesDam #Wuhan

A very informative 5-min English news giving the latest update & also on how dire the flooding situation is: CATCH 22!

Potentially a very critical moment may hit Wuhan sometime in the following 1 week or so.

So, can it be really possible that Wuhan may get flooded?? And, can that be a trigger to cause a major unexpected correction to the Pharma sector !!???

A real sad tragedy aside, this may create an opportunity to BTFD. Image

Severe floods hit #China causing at least 150 casualties due to landslides & diffuse flooding
#ThreeGorgesDam had its 1st flood peak of 2020 on 2 July, but, as shown by this 9 July @CopernicusEU #Sentinel2 🇪🇺🛰️image, one week later the discharge was still sustained Image

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

#msm not covering this.

Catastrophic crisis brewing in China. The three gorges dam on verge of collapse. Rain expected for another 7-10 days.

400 million at risk.

#ThreeGorgesDam #3GD #ChinaFlood

Here are some quick updates concerning #3GD & #ChinaFlood situation based on all the news I came across in the past 2 days .....

-- Chongqing city (upstream #3GD) just made it illegal for anyone to post any flooding related material online.
-- CCP warned, heavy rain will last till at least mid July; according to statistics, the worst flood will be seen in July, not June.
-- according to weather forecast, heavy rain may take a pause temporally this weekend, before resuming.
-- water level at Wuhan has exceeded danger level, and begin to seep into city edge.
-- almost 1000 reservoirs (excluding the big #3GD one) in Hubei & Anhui Provinces are overflowing, so all mini dams floodgates have been fully opened to release...

Some ask, "in what way can #3GD & Wuhan flooding affect us outside of China?" In MANY ways; 1 way is: 80-90%+ basic pharma drug material world uses (97% antibiotics US uses) comes from Wuhan China. Most of those factories sit next to Yangtze.

Flooded Wuhan = global drug shortage Image
#ThreeGorgesDam #ChinaFloods

All the record floods so far are only appetizers.

The entree is coming in mid Summer. I can't imagine how will Wuhan & Shanghai look like when #3GD discharges water in full capacity.

Looks like this potential danger finally catches more people's attention

1/ Since someone asked me for an update about China's situation on rain, flood, & dam (#3GD), so I decided to put together this mini report for everyone. I'll give you a quick update, then explain the catch 22 #3GD is facing.
2/ 1st of all, here's a 1.5-min quick news (English), please check it:

News said "Guizhou has the worst hit" today. Below is a snapshot from yesterday China weather forecast; I point out where Guizhou is & how bad the flood is : Image
3/ Although today's rain is not directly above Yangtze river, but half of those water will find their way back to Yangtze in the following 1-2 days (and, keep in mind, rain will keep coming).

Here is the catch22 for #3GD :

When #3GD was built, no one expected rain will...

Just to make it clear: I am not personally stating that the #ThreeGorgesDam on the Yangtze will collapse.
My point is that its problems with erosion and floods in a country which has been historically plagued by catastrophic floods are a symptomatic illustration of CCP failings.
The CCP objectives (self preservation, total domination) impulse it to use massive means to reign in its opposing forces (here: the Yangtze River) but also conflict with the self discipline needed to achieve these undertakings. This leads to actual poor results.
These results being: the #ThreeGorgesDam is actually pretty bad at flood management it turns out and if reports of its shoddy construction are true, it could turn out to be an enormous liability (300M lives at stake).
The CCP is a self defeating machine.
