No warning or escape route for residents if Oroville dam fails

Communities immediately downstream of California’s Lake Oroville dam would not receive adequate warning or time for evacuations if the 770-foot-tall dam itself — rather than its spillways — were to abruptly fail, the state water agency that operates the nation’s tallest dam repeatedly advised federal regulators a half-decade ago.

    People have been warned for weeks now. They can leave anytime they want.

      The real problem is that either these people should not be there in the first place or that over the last 50 years their tax income should have paid for a second replacement Dam or Dams !

      Either way their attention was diverted into what turns out to be less important things than their life and property as represented by living under a disaster waiting to happen rather than doing something about it.
