Beaver dam breaks, floods homes, roads in Duvall



DUVALL, Wash. - A beaver dam on a pond has broken, flooding land, roads and homes in an area of Duvall.


According to Kirkland fire, the flooding is occurring in the area of 26600 Northeast 124th Street.    Northeast 124th Street at State Route 203 was closed in the area because of water on the roadway, but has since been reopened.


The pond covered 3 to 4 acres.


Video from Chopper 7 showed homes, barns and vehicles in standing water.  


The owner of a flooded home, Bob Siko, said he and his wife filed a complaint with King County in April because a foot of the dam came loose, causing a small flood in their backyard.


Siko said such a break in the dam was exactly what they were concerned about.


After Monday's flood, the homeowner and his father-in-law had to move their pigs to higher ground.


Neighbors are working to divert water back into its natural channel using debris. 


Fire, police and road crews are responding.
