Not to be a stickler, but that doesn't look like several hundred vertical feet.
I was too slow getting these other pics up.......
lol I was just giving you a hard time.
Top pic is Today.
Below is google maps I presume summer of 16 or 15.
Trump should tell them if you keep promise and separate from the USA. We will give you all the help you need.
I believe I read , they had discovered damage to the spill way on the 4th.
Yesterday was the 12th.
They knew full well the water was coming from these storms , and chose to not inform the people that may be harmed .
Then they had deadlocked roads , with people trying to conform to orders to evacuate .
Heads in asses .
I didn't see that they knew about it that long ago.
I heard they knew about it YEARS ago, but didn't fix it due to lack of funding. You know....cuz they're so busy supporting illegals.
Environmental groups complained of the packed dirt Emergancy overflow. Said it needed concrete border. Engineers disagreed. This was in 05. Engineerered said it was up to current engineering specs.
The concrete spillway water release developed a 40 ft deep hole the size of a football field. It needs to be fixed.
At the same time the Emergancy overflow was needed for the first time ever. This packed ground was eroding too. The engineers were wrong.
They are realeasing 100+ plus a sec. I think I read 40 is coming in to the lake. They are trying to drop it by 50 ft by wed new storms.
Currently it's dropping 1 ft every 3 hours. They won't make it at this pace.
Unrelated but still in ca just south of sacramento
Walnut Grove Leeve Failure
WALNUT GROVE, Calif. (KCRA) —
Residents in the Tyler Island area, which is south of Walnut Grove, are being urged to evacuate because an area levee could fail, Sacramento County Water Resources spokesman Matt Robinson said.
There are about 20 homes in the area.
Safe travel routes include Tyler Island Road south to Tyler Island Bridge Road and then to River Road either north or south. Residents can also use Tyler Island/San Andrus Island Road north to Walnut Grove Road and then north or south to either River Road or West Walnut Grove Road.
Residents can get additional road closure information from 311.
No other details have been released.

...and as the state dumps half its fresh water in the ocean to protect a bullshit fishery, it blames agriculture for using the other half, spends billions on tunnels and trains nobody needs, and not a dime on infrastructure improvement like dams.
My gf's dad and grandparents are dirrctly affected by it. Their houses are not in danger but they have still been evacuated from it.

Too bad, otherwise this lyric would turn into a prophecy:
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona Bay
I've read that even if the levees fail that the dam and lake would remain intact, so at least it wont be some million person catastrophe. From those posted pictures I could see how that's true.
And this is why ya don't build below the famn...ever
It really depends if the spillway is superficial or not.
I'm not an engineer however if there is unstabilization in the earth under the cement spillway there could be other places as well including the dam. It's a good thing no ones noticed anything yet in the dam itself.
I've been on top. 770ft to the river below. It may not sound high, but if you've ever been on the 77th floor of a high rise looking down.
If one part fails it could cause other parts to go.
I lived in Oroville back in 2011. I believe that was the last time the damn was open full blast. I lived on the complete opposite side of town up in the start of the mountains. Most of the town is down in the flats below the dam. I lived in Sac up untill a year ago. Reading about them dumping the fresh water into the ocean for some fish or whatever it was was ridiculous. Here are some pics from back in March 2011
Maybe you never heard about the dumping of water to save the sucker fish ?
That would not surprise me , I mean it is Comieforina
Before and after shot of Emergancy spillway made of dirt. Washed away large portions of ground including 2 asphalt roads.
