2. My understanding is that the usual drill is to dump fuel over water

The point of dumping fuel is so that there's less fuel on board in case something happens (like a crash) on landing.

This plane was having some sort of engine issue so maybe the pilots felt it was too "urgent" for that.

3. Procedure is to dump over uninhabited areas

preferably from at least 30,000 feet, that way, the fuel will atomize, rather than falling wet.

Emergency situations override procedure, however.

Lawsuits coming, I'm sure.
