Dustin Rickels of Monticello gazes out on an emptying Lake Delhi from a cabin deck above a breached dam on Sunday, July 25, 2010 near Delhi, Iowa.  The Lake Delhi dam failed the day before as flooding on the Maquoketa River raised the lake to an unprecedented level.  A 30-foot-wide hole was eaten away from the earthen dam, draining the nine mile long recreational lake and threatening the small downtstream town of Hopkinton.
