and more rain in the forecast. Last I heard the water going over the dam was supposed to reach 7ft. Not good when you consider how wide that area is

Pretty easy to spot the idiots on this thread, most likely that would be typical of them on all threads. Let's see if I can find a topic that would be controversial.

Had the spillways totally failed, billions of gallons of water would have flowed from the lake and flooded three counties. In response to the potential flooding, the state government ordered an evacuation that displaced 188,000 nearby people. "Everyone was running around; it was pure chaos," Oroville resident Maggie Cabral told KFSN. "All of the streets were immediately packed with cars, people in my neighborhood grabbing what they could and running out the door and leaving. I mean, even here in Chico, there's just traffic everywhere."
