Residents were allowed to return to their homes, but serious danger remains. Working crews at the endangered dam are working around the clock to stabilize and reinforce the emergency spillway in anticipation of  the melting snow pack runoff,  which will again boost Oroville lake levels.

Musltiple trucks are dropping giant boulders up to the amount of  1,200 tons of rock per hour . However, this mitigation is vey small in comparison to the immense scale of erosion that has already taken place. There’s a real risk that the lake could again overtop its banks.

    Where is Jerry Brown on public announcements and reassurance to his people on all this. His absenteeism is very noticeable. He is an idiot.
