Updated: some newspapers in Pakistan yesterday reported that overtopping at Attabad wss imminent. The news reports suggest that a Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) today raised the water level to 358 feet (109 metres), which would be within 1 metre of the spillway.
The GLOF has also been reported by the Pamir Times.
It now appears that the rise was about 10 feet (3.3 metres). I am awaiting data to confirm this, but if so this would leave about 4.4 metres of freeboard intact.
