California Dam: Latest updates on the potential Lake Oroville dam failure

Three storms are headed for the region and expected to stretch into next week.

Indeed, after lifting the mandatory evacuation order Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Tuesday that "an evacuation warning" would remain in effect given the possibility of future changes in the situation.

That's why Azevedo wasn't budging yet.

"My plan is to stay here".

He said the Sunday evacuation created an "incredibly chaotic situation", but credited residents for getting out in a timely manner and without a major incident.

With blankets, pillows and a little food, Santiago said: "We're going to sleep in the auto".

"It was not part of the record before that, at least the record I saw", Brown said, adding he's glad the report is being discussed. "This federal aid will get money and resources where it's needed most".

"It was just frustrating".

An estimated 190,000 residents were evacuated Sunday from communities underneath the 770-foot Oroville Dam after state officials warned that an untested emergency spillway was expected to fail.

California officials lifted the evacuation orders for residents downstream of Oroville Dam, saying the dam may hold up to upcoming storms.

State and federal officials ignored calls in 2005 from environmental groups to armor the earthen spillway in concrete to prevent erosion. Federal regulators concluded the spillway could handle a large amount of overflow after water agencies responsible for paying for the upgrade argued it was unnecessary.

Asked if officials feel confident about the effort to bolster the emergency spillway, Orrock said, "We are making progress". By Monday, the level of the lake fell enough so that water was no longer pouring over the hill.

As workers rush to make the fixes, inclement weather looms, said Tom Dang, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Sacramento.

But the storm is looking colder than first thought, meaning lower snow levels and less run-off into Sierra reservoirs than the storms last week.

Even miles downstream, watchful eyes are on the water coming from the spillways that eroded to the point of near disaster on Sunday.

A video released Tuesday by the state Department of Water Resources shows a helicopter dropping rocks as authorities frantically work to fix Oroville Dam's eroded spillways before rain begins on Thursday. She's choosing to stay away from her Oroville home. An evacuation warning remained in place, and the sheriff advised people to be prepared for the possibility of another immediate evacuation order. "I've got a four-bedroom, two-bathroom house and I don't know what's going to happen to it", said William Rigsbay, 53, of Thermalito. "This allows our volunteers to come together during times of crisis and work together as if they've worked together for years, allowing for not only a seamless operation but more importantly, to allow us to better serve those who need us".
