Roads Flooded as Oroville Dam Continues to Spill


The Californian Department of Water Resources has been unleashing up to 100,000 cubic feet of water per second from the heavily damaged spillway at Oroville Dam in a bid to drain Lake Oroville after local authorities determined that uncontrolled flood waters could rush down from the lake due to a severe erosion of one of the Oroville Dam’s emergency spillways. Although authorities have been working round the clock to plug remaining holes, the dam, which is about 70 miles north of Sacramento, is still at extreme risk of flooding. Local authorities supervised the evacuation of almost 200,000 people from Butte, Marysville, and Yuba Counties, which are located downstream from California’s second largest water reservoir.
