The dam in Crownpoint is no longer in jeopardy, according to authorities.

The National Weather Service originally reported that the dam was expected to break sometime Sunday evening.

Deputies tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 that the dam is full, but not in danger of breaking.

Officials plan to release some water as a precaution.

The threat has caused Crownpoint School to cancel classes on Monday.
