PHOENIX (AP) -- An earthen dam weakened by heavy rains broke near the Grand Canyon early Sunday, flooding a tribal town and forcing officials to pluck hundreds of residents and campers from the gorge by helicopter. No injuries were immediately reported.

This is breaking news at the moment, i can't find anything on the other news sites at the moment other than Sky who has vague details.

Lets hope this is not to serious. Anyone any idea about this dam and the potential risk?
