CA: Oroville dam collapse feared

BREAKING: Marysville, Yuba County evacuated as Oroville spillway collapse feared

Marysville, Yuba County ordered to evacuate

5:42 p.m.

Marysville police say the city and Yuba County are under mandatory evacuation orders because of the feared collapse of the emergency spillway at Lake Oroville Dam. Yolo County officials said in a tweet that they do not expect any impact.

Witnesses reported a heavy police presence in the city.

“The hazardous situation concerning the Oroville Dam auxiliary spillway is NOT expected to impact Yolo County,” the county said.

Cal OES spokesman Brad Alexander said officials were activating the state emergency operations center and could not immediately address how waterlogged Sacramento County might be affected.

“I can’t answer that right now,” Alexander said.

“It’s uncontrolled. It’s uncontrolled
"It is remarkable the amount of ire you collect nowadays, like lint, simply by being insufficiently worshipful of the State and its gentle intentions." --James Lileks

Is God trying to flush Califorinicate?

The saddest part is the environmentalists will never let them rebuild the dam.

Have had seven years of a drought. Why are there ANY problems with our reservoirs in CA? Levels were down, ALL repairs could have and should have been done. I saw on the news Friday that they were trying to clear that back up spillways, they were filled with trees and bushes.
Who do we hold accountable for this?
Oh yea we are in CA, NO ONE!

Be sure to flush twice.

They're saying it's the spillway and not the dam itself. See Katrina 2005 for Official Canned Responses.

This is gonna make Katrina look like a kiddie wading pool if it all goes.

Last summer Lake Oroville was empty and now its overflowing, too much water too fast from the winter storms. I drove over the Feather River Bridge (last year) connecting Yuba City with Marysville and you could see the bottom bedrock of the river. For now it has stopped raining but there are record amounts of snowfall that will melt off and run down into the lake from the Sierra's. Real bad situation. This is the second largest reservoir in the state.

Unless I am mistaken on the dams, first they had issues with the spillway gates being able to open. Then the spillway itself was crumbling. They were trying to clean out the emergency back up spillway that had filled with dirt, shrubs and trees over the years.
The dam is doing just as it should.

News reports have the auxiliary spillway collapsing and fearing the dam is next to go.

There is also a report that Gov. Jerry Brown has put in a call to DJT. It's unknown if DJT's voicemail picked up. Karma in all it's glory.

It will be interesting to hear the whole story. After all it is California and they go nuts over endangered minnows or birds nobody has seen in fifty years!

I think the area in question is mostly of earthen construction and has experienced years of extreme drought. What happens when a dried out foundation is suddenly saturated??? Will these mysteries ever end??? Swamp

Is the guverer going to ask for foreign aid from the U.S.A.?

Just sign here that you give up being a Sanctuary State.

To bad, so sad. If they'd gather up all the illegals they're protecting and put them in front of the breast, I bet ya they could hold the breast in place.

Russsia's behind all of this.
