Water out of the dam is reported to have altered in the way it is coming through. Rather you than me.

The rainfall would have to be crazy high to sump the pipe, but it's possible. I can't see anyone getting stuck in the pipe unless frozen in panic. It's not that long, and I've only ever seen a few inches of water in the bottom, even in rain. You could always walk out of the daylight chamber anyway.
