WEBSTER COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Heavy rains Sunday and Monday may have caused the dam at Savannah Lake between Mantee and Eupora in Webster County to breach, flooding homes and closing at least two roads.

Webster County spokesperson Jimmy Forrester says the dam breached this afternoon. Waters flooded Lucius and Hooper roads, closing them.

No injuries were reported but homes were flooded.

Lucius Road is a dirt road  that runs below the dam for Savannah Lake off Savannah Lake Road.
