There is NO SHUTTING THIS DOWN, folks! 200,000 are being evacuated, do NOT STAY HOME! This will be a LONG TERM crisis!

Thousands of people have been fleeing California towns below the overflowing Oroville Dam after fears of an imminent collapse of its emergency spillway prompted an evacuation order. Authorities are seeking to stem the breach with the help of helicopters.

“Immediate evacuation from the low levels of Oroville and areas downstream is ordered. This is NOT A Drill. This is NOT A Drill. This in NOT A Drill,” says the statement posted on the Butte County Sheriff’s Facebook page.

The statement refers to the Lake Oroville Dam, located 105 km (65 miles) north of Sacramento.

The dam’s spillway was “predicted to fail within the next hour,” the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) said at around 4:30pm PST Sunday (00:30 GMT Monday).

“DO NOT TRAVEL NORTH TOWARD OROVILLE,” the Yuba County Office of Emergency Services said on Facebook, urging evacuees to travel safely in all other directions and help the elderly.

Thousands of people from Yuba County and Sutter County have been filmed being evacuated from local towns and communities, with vehicles creating long traffic jams.

DWR issued a statement, saying that there is no danger that the dam itself will collapse, as the incident had affected only an emergency spillway.

“Oroville Dam itself is sound and is a separate structure from the auxiliary spillway,” the statement read.

The emergency is the first time in the 48-year-old dam’s history that an uncontrolled spillway is being used, local NBC affiliate KCRA-TV reported.

Heavy rains and snow that struck California this winter have resulted in the dam’s reservoir being filled up to the point of overspill. On Thursday, the works to release water from the dam began after chunks of concrete from the spillway were discovered in the channel below.

On Friday, only 7 feet (2 meters) were left until the dam was to reach its full capacity.

The DWR has been using the emergency spillway instead of the damaged one to release the water.

Meanwhile, a series of statements from the DWR included a seemingly bizarre plan to fill in the widening gorge in the spillway by dropping rocks from helicopters.

    What is it with the sensational titles on BIN that do not reflect reality once you click the article and read the story? I see too many people doing it and after a while it gets annoying. :roll:

    To say the dam is busting is not the same as saying the emergency spill way is busting, now is it?

    It might not be a bad idea about now if you LIVE in Oroville (or anywhere even NEAR there downriver) to have a Submarine for a home or at the very least a big ass Houseboat for quick “Get Away” vehicle (Just “In Case”) !!!

    Learn about what you are reporting about before making statements or just repeating what you come across. The Oroville dam is, yes an Earthen fill damn, but it is also a very stable dam. There is NOTHING wrong with the dam itself. The original engineers were smart to put the spillway and emergency spillway where they did. Completely away from the dam itself. The erosion will get worse before we are all done here, but they are going to be just fine.
