The city flooded 64 years ago “surfaced” because of the drought in the United States

In the United States, due to a severe drought, the city of Rockport, flooded 64 years ago, “surfaced,” drone test pilot Devon Dewey shared pictures on his Twitter account.

The foundations of buildings that went underwater decades ago have become visible in Utah. According to the pilot, he saw the foundations of old houses and a road lying below the place where there was usually water. “The whole area is quite flat and homogeneous, so although the foundations are old and mostly disappeared, you can still see them clearly if you know where to look,” he told KSL News.

According to the Daily Star, the city, located in the narrow part of the Weber Valley at the mouth of the Three Mile Canyon, was flooded to construct the Wanship Dam in 1957. Despite the protest of the residents, the U.S. government bought the entire valley and created the Rockport reservoir.
