The California Department of Water Resources issued a sudden evacuation order shortly before 5 p.m. Sunday for residents near the Oroville Dam in northern California, warning that the dam’s emergency spillway would fail in the next 60 minutes.

The Oroville Dam is the highest in the nation.

Damn I hate my state. Meanwhile, they should have built teeth reservoirs in Southern California since the last drought. Did they? Nope. Let’s build a fake train instead.

Prayers for those living in the in danger areas.

Get out quick.

So much for the statement about bedrock beneath the auxiliary spillway.

they were keeping the outflow down the damaged controlled spillway to 55,000 cfs

because they were concerned of more erosion back towards the DAM

Take a look: Oroville is over it’s “full pool!”

http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cdecapp/resapp/resDetailOrig.action?resid=ORO

One has to wonder why the DWR hasn’t been doing released from Oroville like they have with the other major reservoirs in California.

Example: Here’s what they’ve been doing with Folsom:

You have to wonder just what these a$$holes have for brains.

Weather people seem to REALLY believe that they are important.

*When California gets ONE drop of rain TOO LITTLE, they weatherwitcheswarlocks bring out the "drought" CDs.

**When California gets ONE drop of rain TOO MUCH, they weatherwitcheswarlocks bring out the "flood" CDs.

ABSURD.

Humans have been weather watching for only a little while compared to the age of the sun--4.5 BILLION years. So, the weatherwitcheswarlocks think that they are hot stuff.

BALDERDASH!

This is so stupid. Idiots building a $80 billion dollar train instead of water control and collection.

And yet your BEGGING OUR GOVERNMENT for money??? Why don’t you start charging for all those ILLEGAL immigrants you have in your STATE for money to repair the dam so you don’t get flooded away??? No very bright are you, Governor Brown!!!

It’s time to pray for those impacted and that the dam will hold. Questions later.

Marysville and Yuba City are down stream. Wonder if Beale AFB is affected as well.

Transferred into the bullet train fund, and making criminal illegal aliens more comfortable.
