#1 The hydroelectric project was completed in February 2009. Its final cost was $360 million, which was $136 million over budget. The dam was Ethiopia's largest public works project.[2] The dam helped to reduce power shortages as Ethiopia's power demand increases.

At the time of its completion, the 188 metres (617 ft) Tekezé Dam was Africa's largest double-curvature arch dam.[3] The resulting reservoir is 105 km² large and it has a capacity of 9.3 billion m³ of water.

#2 I am hopeful they just damaged the power plant, not the dam.

#3 If that were the case, Bobby, we'd likely be hearing stories about downstream flooding by now.
