    Well the paper says they're letting people back in this morning but it looks like the rain is going to start again tomorrow through Saturday.

    My boss (OK, ex-boss) tells me that this dam was part of a system which did not get completed. There was supposed to be a dam upstream to share the load.

    Well, they were right about the drought. But everything moves in cycles. Guess they forgot about that part.

    They are only concerned about the election cycle.

    I just saw video of the spillway and it looks like it's collapsing. That or they decided to let out a whole bunch of water.

    Oroville spillway reopening. Up to 50K cfm. Impressive.

    Yes, thanks Ohio! Very well produced videos. Be sure to watch his flyover video which was equally well done. :)
