This Dam could cause the World’s worst Natural Disaster and imcact 5 Million

The experts believe Lake Sarez is a ticking time bomb.
In its very first moments of existence, the Usoi dam claimed the lives of an entire village. It was formed during a 1911 earthquake that saw the Usoi settlement buried by a massive landslide that blocked the Murghab River and formed Tajikistan’s Lake Sarez. At roughly 1,860 feet, the Usoi is the world’s highest natural dam.
Lake Sarez is isolated now, but in 1911 it was even more so: It took six weeks for news of the disaster to reach civilization. Today there are at least 30 villages in the Bartang Valley, and more scattered across surrounding areas. And they’re all in mortal danger. If the Usoi dam fails, which is inevitable, it could be the worst natural disaster in human history.
