Texas dam collapse caught on camera

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- Cameras captured the moment a dam collapsed in Texas.

The partial structure failure took place at the Dunlap Dam in New Braufels. 

The break sent water cascading briskly through the 91-year-old dam's middle gate. 

Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority officials say it caused a nearby lake to drop seven feet. 

Officials say there was a similar spillgate incident three years ago which still hasn't been repaired.
