"Infrastructure: More Dams Breach In The Carolinas"

"Hurricane Florence has moved on, but rivers continue to rise in the Carolinas, and their aging dams are beginning to feel the strain.

In North Carolina, two dams in Anson County breached, causing the evacuation of about a dozen homes, according to media reports. Residents were later able to return when water levels were deemed safe.

Bridget Munger, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Quality, confirmed the dams breached but noted those impoundments do not fall under the jurisdiction of the state agency."
