BREAKING: Dam in Oxford is about to break, “get to higher ground”

Local News

Lafayette County authorities believe the Audubon Dam is about to break.  

The dam failure will cause flash flooding in the North Point Subdivision in North Oxford, according to a report from WCBI News. 

Residents in the area were urged to move to higher ground “immediately” on Saturday afternoon.

Due to erosion and recent heavy rain fall, officials expect the dam to give way.

Officials say they’re monitoring it.
