discussion and news regarding the Oroville Dam / spillway , cali goodjer checkin (not sure if we have people in that area?)
This looks to have been going on since the 10th, and getting worse;
Emergency evacuation ordered, people busy arguing about nomenclature rather than evacuating. Main issue seems to be spillover at the moment but engineers are noting the dam itself might fail too.
Dam volume 77,619,000 cu yd (59,344,000 m3)
Spillway capacity 250,000 cu ft/s (7,100 m3/s)
so a sh*t ton of water.
Hope goodjers in the area have been able to/are able to get out safely.
