    Radio host said it’s because under the Dem’s, the needed funding was not given to be checked or kept up.

    I Am the Lord! Besides Me there is no Savior. For there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved!...For in him we live, and move, and have our being!

    I have a feeling these same Dems will try to make it President Trump’s fault :wacko: , or at least make the claim the Republicans blocked them from providing the funds. I just pray these families are safe and out of harms way..

    Efforts are underway to make repairs to both the primary and auxiliary spillways at Lake Oroville.

    This Video is from today and the Damage of the Spillway half way down to the River. It looks like they have the water level below the Emergency Spill way, for now, But they have about 4 to 6 days of Rain coming again, they have about three days before it starts..

    The latest up date..

    Rainfall over the next week could total 5-12 inches and will likely push hundreds of billions of water back into Lake Oroville, Hennen said.

    Will that be enough to overwhelm the dam’s spillways?

    “The simple answer is we don’t know, but that is the concern,” Hennen said.

    Evacuation order lifted

    A mandatory evacuation order that caused 188,000 to leave has been lifted.

    Evacuees allowed to return to homes near Oroville dam

    Yes, I heard repairs were needed ten years ago and never done. Why? No cement could be used because of the concern over those little fish who seemed to rule above all human needs.

    It galls me CA threatens to leave the union and has had such a fit since Trump was elected. Caused so much trouble and damage. Nasty remarks have been made about Trump and now the Governor wants financial help from Trump. Grrr. (So if they leave the union who assists financially? Have they thought that through? I’m sure we’d still help but …) The tune has changed momentarily but I doubt even if financial help is given, their attitude will change and the Dems will still scream about little fish and Trump. Sigh. Is insanity catching? The photos of all that surging water reminds us of the turmoil we see in people’s hearts now.

    Praying for the safety of those caught in this mess.

    The eyes of the Lord range throughout the entire earth, to strengthen those whose heart is true to him.

    It makes me wonder in California is about to be judged by God?
    If it gives way it will impact the capitol of that state.

    Daly says residents of low-lying areas have been told to be ready to evacuate, especially those in San Joaquin River Club, a riverside, private neighborhood of 800 homes 10 miles south of Tracy.

    Flood fears renewed as another storm aims for California #OrovilleDam #ShastaDam…
    Shasta Dam now releasing maximum 79k cubic feet per second…

    While officials will be monitoring the Oroville situation and continuing their spillway repair work, many other dams and levees across the region will come under increasing stress as this week’s rains fall atop already-saturated ground. “Given record wetness to date, Monday #AtmosphericRiver will be stress test for CA water infrastructure
