Is in imminent danger of failure apparently.

Decent fb link for a vid. It is relatively awe inspiring when the scale sets in:

IIRC, 2nd largest damn in Cali and a mandatory evac is underway.

The dam is not in danger of collapse. The emergency spillway was in danger of collapse due to a failure with the regular spillway.

Sierras have so much snow this season. Last warm pulse is putting on quite the show. No shortage of water for Norcal this summer.

That's the quality of US news reporting when you steal Canadian-taxpayer funded TV from across the border. We need a big, beautiful wall!

You make no sense.

It would have taken 2 or 3 seconds more to name the reservoir and both towns in that one sentence news spot she delivered. CBC couldn't pull that together before going to air?

I hope they have the good sense to capture some of that run-off downstream before it goes in the chuck.

The dams going to be fine, I think it's hilarious that all the californians who wanted to split are begging for federal aid now.

Maybe California will get back some of the $405,851,295,000 (that's about $406 billion) in federal taxes they sent to DC last year.
