The Lake Dunlap spillway suffered a catastrophic failure earlier this week, and it was all caught on camera: an old dam gate keeling over and allowing water to surge into the waterway beyond.

But it's not even that big of a problem, apparently. They announced some voluntary water restrictions while they work on it. There isn't much more to the story. That's it.

Well, what did you expect? Eight minutes of breathless narrative? Menacing music and scrapy metal sound effects crafting an aura of suspense? Soundbite interviews with dam workers? Three commercial breaks each followed by a recap of the story so far? It's just an old spill gate failing. Jesus. They're fixing it already.
