I have seen the yard on 7th in Oroville where they are
hauling burned vehicles to. It is a sobering sight.

I would so easily weep right there I would drop to the ground and cry on my knees.

The dead are angry.

They are dead...

Juan is definitely legit.
He replied to a comment in his latest video that he was working on an update on the Oroville situation currently and will post soon.

It does look like Mother Nature is preparing to test mans recent efforts to enforce the dam.

I think the green spot will blow out someday, but the current issue is the spillway gates.

They rebuilt the whole spillway, but the gates are still fucked up. The bottom of the intake to the gates is at 813', but they won't try to use it until 830-840'.

What happens if the gates jam or tweak when they try to open them?

The issues with the gate head structure were documented in the annual inspection reports. As well as the green spot seepage.

Can't get close to it as all the nearby access is still closed to the public.

If Oroville blows, I imagine it wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to believe a series of catastrophic dam failures will be realized from Sacramento all the way through south of Shakeytown?

Re: California's Lake Oroville Main Spillway Severly Damaged/Eroded. New Spillway May Be Used Soon
On that latest blancolirio vid the bridge road over the spillway channelwas still intact with the water half up its bank. How did/will they clear all that debris? That was 19 Feb I think.

Has the road bridge been cleared? Surely by now? If it has been cleared surely they can not have dredged the channel clear with all that water flopping over the road debris.

Will all that loose gravel/sand etc cause the gates/ or help scour the channel creating problems?

Did they leave clearing the spillway channel TOO LATE? Hmmmmm

The water would head down through Sac and out the delta to the SF Bay.

LA wouldn't be affected, as the water has to be pumped up over the grapevine to get there.
What the Hell?...

I'm not sure I understand. Local news said the contractor was removing equipment and debris from the spillway (below the gates) in case it is to be used.

Did you see debris elsewhere?
What the Hell?...

Oh, okay...thanks!

I think that Narrows dam south of Shakeytown is expected to fail. Is that correct?

I've been to Shakeytown on business on numerous occasions. I gotta say I really, really, really hate that Fkn place.

I really hope something bad happens to it.
GO LOOK AT A MAP !!!
