Family's home hit by 5ft wall of flood water after BEAVER dam breaks

At least one home was caught in the middle and hit with a 5-foot wall of water that was 160 feet wide in Duvall, Washington. Beavers commonly build damns on streams and rivers to flood surrounding areas. The resulting ponds create habitat for them, as well as protection from predators.
