The Force of Water

How powerful is the force of water?

It was World War II, and the British Royal Navy ships were experiencing unexplained damage to their propellers. Physicists worked out the problem: it was cavitation bubbles. Cavitation bubbles occur when turbulent waters cause tiny bubbles to grow and then collapse. These tiny bubbles can rise to temperatures of 27,000 degrees F., as hot as a star’s surface! The result is great damage where the bubbles burst.
 
Little wonder that this same cavitation mechanism cut through solid concrete dam tunnels at Glen Canyon Dam just north of the Grand Canyon in 1983. Unexpected rains put pressure on the dam’s spillway causing slight rumblings and vibrations. One of the spillways in the tunnel’s portals erupted with jets of water containing debris of concrete, rebar and rock, one boulder measured 10 feet by 15 feet. Upon inspection, the tunnel had a new hole, 50 feet by 135 feet. The high speed water had cut through the reinforced concrete and sandstone. Cavitation had done its work.
 
Now imagine the destructive power of rushing waters as they poured off the continents at the end of the Global Flood. We can see the leftover signs of fast flowing water scouring the land cavitation in the steep-sided canyons, gorges and ravines of the world.
