LINCOLN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A dam break in Lincoln County has almost drained a ten-acre private lake and washed out about 50-feet of a public road. Stamps Lake is a private lake about three miles south of Brookhaven. The Road affected is River Road.

There were no injuries or property damage when the dam broke overnight. All the water ran into a creek.

The washed out road will force families who live in the area to take a longer route to get to and from home.
