Oroville dam evacuation order lifted, warning remains
Residents living below the Oroville Dam suddenly were ordered to evacuate Sunday after water authorities assured them for almost a week the dam was sound despite a gaping and growing hole in the structure's main spillway.
An evacuation warning means the immediate threat has ended but potential for an emergency remains and therefore residents must remain prepared for the possibility of an evacuation order.
Although the dam's structure remained intact, the damage to the primary spillway was serious enough to prompt officials to order the evacuation of almost 188,000 people living around Oroville over concerns that the emergency spillway might fail and cause billions of gallons of uncontrolled water to pour down the hillside toward Oroville and other towns downstream.
"This is still an emergency", Honea told reporters. And a 30-foot wall of water can bring a lot of sorrow. The death toll could have been staggering. "But despite how really chaotic it was, I'm really proud and thankful of the citizens of Butte County..."
"We were told repeatedly that the spillways and the dam were all fine", said Eric Wesselman, executive director of advocacy organization Friends of the River, according to Reuters.
Crews have been working around the clock to fix the dam's damaged spillway.
Officials say the water level at the lake behind the dam is now low enough to accommodate the expected rain.

Honea said that the almost 200,000 residents allowed to return home should use the time this week before the next set of storms to fully prepare in case another evaluation is needed.
