I was indifferent to the story of the Oroville Dam until my friend Paul Preston alerted me to the dangers. Ususally in a potential crisis, the more you hear, the more you learn that it is not as bad as you feared. In this case, my fear level has gone in the opposite direction.
I have almost exhausted my reach. I have heard from people that are leaving. However, I am not hearing from enough.
I cannot say for sure that this dam is going to break. However, the spillways are compromised, the dam is at capacity and there are six days of rain forecasted for the area beginning on Wednesday. This is a lethal situation. I feel strongly that we should be erring on the side of caution regardless, if the dam is going to break. To date, only 10 percent of the people who should be evacuated have been.
The video below will convey how serious things are! I am asking for your help. I need help in getting the word out. Please help me make this go vira,l as I want to make sure that I have done all that I am humanly capable of doing to warn the 2 million people who could be impacted.
