research for me - out of time
"We walked all the way up to where the dam was. We knew by then that it could not have been just a cofferdam. When we got there, it was massive, a huge, towering thing that had the whole left side out of it where it had broken through. Strangely enough, to the right of that dam was a house. Absolutely untouched. You could look from the dam across the hollow and see where the water had hit the other side of the mountain. The water came out of there and went WHUMP! And then it careened from side to side all the way down. It was absolute devastation, just like taking a dozer and scraping the land clear for 5 miles or so.
