Evacuation Routes for Oroville Dam Area (CA)

20 04 2019

We looked at the Butte County (home of Oroville’s troubled dam) and find their “Interactive” Flood Evacuation Map is just an outline of selected districts with no info at all on where to go.

Here is more complete information –

ZONE 1 (nearest the dam) EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 2  EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 3 & 4  EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 5 & 6  EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 7 & 11 EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 6 & 9  EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 8  EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 10  EVACUATION MAP

ZONE 2 thru 11 …. good luck!  Mostly you get directed to the best highway any which way you can get there. See the Evacuation-Zone-Finder-Map to see if they even offer a get-out-of-town route to take.  You can sign up for a mobile phone ALERT here . . . if you agree to surrender “data about your activities (e.g., the pages you viewed, the date and time of your visit, and location information from your IP address or GPS location)”.

LIVE CAM today

– the trickle is boosted up to a stream (1/2 the spillway unused).
Are some gates stuck?

Blancolirio says nothing to see, move along. Says the snow melt is too gradual to stress the dam.
