Oroville Dam Rain Watch < UPDATED

15 05 2019

Rain due today. Stay tuned … we will update this post.

The water level is

The LIVE CAM looks like they are trying out the whole width of the iffy spillway.
Oops! No they aren’t. They are using ¼ of the spillway and the rain makes it look like more width. Same old same old.

LIVE RADAR shows nearby scattered showers. But steady rain is expected tonight.

An inch of rain can send the water level into the danger zone.

Zero Hedge Deja Vu: Is the Oroville Spillway About To Fail Just Two Years

After Near-Disastrous Evacuation?

” . . . If you live in an area that would be affected if the Spillway fails, I strongly urge you to evacuate if you can at all before Mother Nature dumps several more inches of rain this weekend.”

These repairs to the aging dam should have been taken care of when the Main Spillway was reinstalled and water wasn’t flowing. They already knew in 2017 that the gates were cracked and needed repairs. Just watch the video by Milli Kay from 2017.

I am tending to believe they want the dam to blow so they can look for gold and take people’s land. If they flood the towns the nat’l. guard will come in to keep residents away.

I could keep an eye 👀 on how far the water is from overtopping the Emergency Spillway on the Visitor’s center CAM. However, problems viewing lately have been spotty. Seems to me it’s because the water is so close to overtopping.

Ya know, I’m thinking the dam’s hill sides must be in danger of liquifying when water levels reach a certain height. Those aren’t huge hills either. Can you the enormous pressure those little hills have pushing on them from the close to 3.5 million acre-feet from Lake Oroville? The higher the water gets the more force exerted on those little hills.

My question is how long do they think they can cover this up? It’s one thing to tamper with the live cams and to do secretive work at night and to put a lid on the local commercial press …. but when it starts to go it will be beyond cover-upping….

I managed to get a framegrab of the water line at the top of the Emergency Spillway, from a far away shot. No closeup Emergency Spillway shots even though this is, by far, the most important location right now. The Visitor’s Center CAM is going haywire, especially when showing locations around the dam. I bet they know what their doing by not letting viewers watch the disaster unfold. If they we’re confident in their work, the CAM would be permanently trained on the Emergency Spillway waterline to calm public fears. They don’t care. The American taxpayer 🇺🇸 gave them the funds to repair the dam. So the American citizen should be able to see how well out tax dollars were utilized. The Top of Spillway CAM should also stay trained on the Emergency Spillway because everyone knows this is the most important location in the next 3-5 days.

The Emergency Spillway kicks in at 891 feet and we have 0.05 foot until that value is reached, which is 0.6 inch. In other words, a little over half an inch before overtopping the Emergency Spillway.

Tampering?
The CAM’s video facing the dam is very, very light, so you can’t really see the overtopping of the Emergency Spillway clearly. The haters might say the sun’s blazing into the CAM. I say, well check out the clear view from the opposite side with the same CAM. And………notice the thick, dark clouds.

Cuttlefish,
you gotta get Real.
You have your prerogative, your protocol, your editorial power.
Notice your respondent above, “Ellie Brown”.
Calls for TRUMP to do something? FEMA?
“Why are there not evacuations…”
You, Cuttlefish, are part of the Misinformation and Disinformation.
Learn now.
California bureaucracies got corrupted by political “correctness”
in the form of Promoting Spanish-Latino-Chicano Idiots into
positions where WE REALLY NEED BRAIN POWER.
Just as you supported rebuilding Notre Dame Cathedral,
you are promoting that these Halfwit Politically-promoted
Hispanics, Mexicans, etc. ARE EQUALS? That they are Educated?
No! Your confusion about Notre Dame is Hard Upon you.
Catholicism is the evil force, Spanish gangsters run the so-called
“law enforcement”.
Jerry Brown and his Cocaine Catholic Jesuit Trip is WHY.
We need Real Minds, not incompetents.
Print my previous post, where i tell you about “Migrants”
being dropped at bus stations along the interstates, do they can
run wild and pollute our nation even more.
Just yesterday, at Deming, NM, they dropped off 250 “Migrants”
at the little mom-and-pop-store which serves as the Greyhound
bus stop. The Indian refugee running the store was hard put
to provide restroom supplies, drinking water. THIS IS REAL
CUTTLEFISH. So fucking get with the TRUTH!
Your protection of Spanish Catholic Idiots is self-destructive.
These “Migrants” are coming to destroy your neighborhood.

I do feel much US international conglomerate wealth was made by cartels fixing prices on global south for centuries and their impoverishment has more to do with that than than their own behavior all this time.

Thank You!
Yes Injustice is History.
The Good Lord has his Favorites, from time to time, and
massive slaughterings of hundreds of thousands of people
are a part of History which should be carefully examined,
not swept under the rug. Why did that happen?
There are real continuities leading to Today’s Reality.
Now we have an active campaign to dumb down the USA.
It is something a truth-teller must speak…
War Economy is what built a middle class.
War Mongering Economy. World War Two was
industrially prepped many years in advance. No Surprise.
Union Labor.
Now we see Boeing as the largest dollar-earner exporter
in the whole USA. Military hardware.
All of our good Brother-Sister-hippie-good-vibrations are
destroyed by the evil. We are not without Sin.
The intentional campaign to destroy the LORD’s people
is well underway. Europe intentionally flooded with
incompatible, uncooperative, ungrateful Muslims.
Locusts is what the Bible calls them.
Now see the Gamey Trip. We will send them by the
thousands to Florida–Wait!–No!-we can’t handle that!
Your Democrat “sanctuary” commies now use the biggest
most powerful weapon available in Election Years:
Abortion rights as political football.
This new Alabama–Missouri–etc. Abortion Clamp-down
is guaranteed to be the wedge issue with the only real
power to disrupt the Repubs. Too Bad there must be this evil.
We have real criminal impacts upon our lives in NM.
Thank You for running a Truth-Teller Shop.
There will be demographic shifts like the transition of
India-Pakistan-Kashmir-Bangladesh-Sri Lanka…
lots of terrorism, small tribal wars, mass migrations of
starving desperate victims.
Oroville, obviously doomed, like your great contributors
have proven. Poor people soon to be herded into
Concentration Camps by Overtime Cops.
Maybe somebody’s life will be saved because of your
Truth Warnings about this Dam. It underlines for Me,
the cascade of prophetic realities happening quickly.
Folks may not be able to get away to anywhere from
Cali.
Meanwhile, today’s news said that El Paso is so
overwhelmed with “Migrants” that 125 will be sent
by plane to San Diego for processing. Yay!
