What exactly happened at Guri Dam? "In 2017, Stratfor received an unconfirmed report that the government was dredging areas in the Guri Dam flood plain in Bolivar state for gold and other minerals."

In 2016 there was a YouTube video alleging incompetent Maduro bureaucrats were recklessly dredging round the dam itself.

What argues against any collapse scenario is it is the dry season in Venezuela and no reports of a breach have been reported. Still, what the anecdotes suggest is the gov't may be incompetent and not in control.
Perhaps cavitation damage from low water levels damaged the turbines.
