Dramatic Photos Show Reservoir Floodgates Opening in China

At first glance it may seem as though these pictures show an imminent natural disaster, with the tourist bystanders about to be engulfed in the onrushing tide. Luckily the dramatic images are the by-product of something far less deadly. Each year the Xiaolangdi Reservoir, in China’s Luoyang region, opens its floodgates to clear sediment left by the country’s second largest waterway, the Yellow River. In this process the reservoir discharges 2,600 cubic metres per second. (MSN)

Revelers pose at the 2013 Mermaid Parade at Coney Island on June 22, 2013 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.
