This tragedy is in line with a series of serious life and death disasters(for those involved and others who will be in future) caused by dams. Google search for Predicting Earthquakes/Ramaswami Ashok Kumar and check out the unfolding pralaya like situations. The surges induced by the world's dams are travelling around through the earth in surge waves causing earthquakes and related events like infrastructure collapses by a nuclear effect that caused the Fukushima ongoing catastrophe. More Fukushimas around the world are certain to occur because of this phenomenon which has rigid scientific validity. These are all preceded by deep focus earthquakes also triggered by the dams.
