badmanphilosophy: What's mysterious about this! Always want to relate anything unusual to evil. It burst up like that due to the pressure of the current.
lobatanpictures: How's that mysterious? Obviously there's an obstruction there.
efficacy_1: It is simple, this is flood fine. Therein, there is an obstruction at that point that causes that overtopped or overflowing... Simple carting away of the debris and increase in the height if that culvert would avert all this.
