Broken beaver dam unleashes flood near Duvall

A beaver dam holding back a pond near Duvall broke apart on Monday, causing a rush of water and debris that damaged a home and flooded a street.

..."I had a wall of water 4 to 5 feet high, 160 feet wide up behind my house, around both sides of my house," said Bob Siko, whose home was damaged by the floodwaters.

Sharon Conn, who lives near the pond, said the floodwaters "pretty well washed out" Northeast 124th Street, where she lives.

"It's just like a raging river, and right now they're not letting anyone out," she said by phone as water poured down the street. "It was just this small, little area here; we're kind of isolated. There's no other road out."
