Cooling pond dam failure

On Thursday water continued to cascade out of a cooling pond at Duke Energy's H. F. Lee power plant after a dam ruptured on Monday or Tuesday. Helicopter inspections by Duke Energy failed to identify the collapsed dam on Wednesday morning, and the company would not become aware of the breach until Wednesday afternoon, when a local news crew called after flying over the site.
