Swollen lake prompts evacuations

Posted: Updated:
ADAMS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A swollen lake prompted about a dozen evacuations in Adams County Thursday.

Robin's Lake, south of Natchez near the Mississippi River, took on so much rain Thursday it topped the dam that was built to hold it back.

Part of the road across the dam collapsed, but a spokeswoman for the sheriff's department said there is no danger of the dam failing.

As a precaution, deputies evacuated a dozen or so families who live nearby.

The spokeswoman said the situation is under control.
