Oroville Dam will fail in the coming days

The forecast for the region calls for torrential multi-day rains which will fill the reservoir faster than the main spillway can ever drain it. This will lead to the water overtopping the emergency spillway and leading either to the direct failure of the that spillway or headward erosion through the hillside, which will cause a total failure of the entire system. I can't believe the authorities let people return home in the face of what is obviously coming.

I've been keeping up with that situation. The amount of water they are expecting is at least as much as what made it overflow, if not more.

Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

The drought will be back. It's cyclical. And the California retards will do exactly nothing to conserve water in preparation for the next one. I bet the lawn sprinklers are already running a high volume.

Those Cali people are the height of hypocrisy, pretending to care about nature while they waste water on lawns that should not exist in that climate.

And we shouldn't forget those other dams in the region. They are all at or very near capacity now too. There COULD be other disasters coming.

If anyone finds a decent live/streaming link, please post.

I've found a few, but they are no longer 'live.'

TIA

The evacuees were allowed to return to their homes a couple of days ago as far as I read, but I haven't been following this story because I've been so dam busy
