Get out of Dodge is our advice to downstream dwellers.

No updates from here for a while. Internet problems … so use our resources and links and YouTube for the latest news.
TV is worthless.

UPDATE
Keith C. Mandeville (19:07:09) :
Looks like the main spillway will be reopened possibly on Friday or Saturday. The lake level continues to rise. The spillway has yet to be repaired to its former smooth state. Repair crews have reinforced crushal areas with a quick setting concrete. This includes the very important dam-side of the main spillway hole. I’ve read that the California Department of Water Resources does not want the fast moving water to create a back flow that eats away the materials under the main spillway back towards the dam.
