Thousands of Northern Californians were told to leave their homes Sunday evening, as an emergency spillway in the country's tallest dam was in danger of failing and unleashing uncontrolled flood waters on towns below.

The emergency spillway of the Oroville Dam in Butte County could fail within an hour unleashing uncontrolled flood waters from Lake Oroville, the California Department of Water Resources said on Sunday afternoon.

How sad, we are destroying earth and thereby our own existence, in the name of development! What are we developing into?

It didn't fail. They are using bags of rocks to shore up the emergency spillway.

 

 

Nearly 200,000 people who were ordered to leave their homes out of fear that the Oroville Dam spillway could collapse may not be able to return home until the barrier is fixed, officials said.

At a Monday news conference, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea did not specify how long the repairs would take and offered no timetable for when the evacuation order would be lifted.

Meanwhile, water levels dropped Monday at Lake Oroville, stopping water from spilling over the 770-foot-tall dam's emergency spillway, slightly easing the fears of a catastrophic spillway collapse.

But with more rain expected later in the week, time was running short to fix the damage ahead of the storms.

California is and always has been a desert. Southern California is even dryer than Northern California and really has no water to speak of at all. The only way the state can function is with Dams and Reservoirs containing the infrequent rains and snow melt for year round use and making green "hydro-electric" energy. Southern California has such little water available to it Northern California, which was in a drought itself, was forced under Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown's first administration to send it's water south and it still does.

 

The authorities were told 12 years ago there were problems at that dam and at many others in the state.

 

The Wackjobs in charge of California now want to get rid of all the dams and return the land "Back to Nature".

This would put the last nail in the coffin of the California Agriculture and Livestock industries that have been murdered by those same Wackjobs shutting off the pumps in the Sacramento river that fed the central valley using a crap fish no one cares about as the premise for destroying the industries that fed the world.

This forced us to eat non-USDA inspected and controlled NAFTA produce from Mexico that is killing everyone.

 

What's a few thousand American deaths to the dream of a North American Union and eventually a One World Government?

 

So a few dams have been blown up and the rest have been ignored so that this kind of thing might happen and give the fellow travelers running California an excuse to bring the rest of the dams down.

 

What's a few hundred thousand American lives compared to a One World Government?

Depending upon how much water they get with this next rain and the Sierra Snow melt come spring it still might fail.

Sierra Nevada snowpack is biggest in 22 years — and more snow is on the way

 

Not Looking good........
