    Breaking News: Oroville Dam spillway has been compromised and is breaking up: Whole section of concrete has been washed away and huge cracks appearing.

    Live streaming of the Oroville Dam is
    suggesting the spillway has been compromised and a whole section of concrete
    has been washed away.
    A large breach can be seen in the concrete
    slipway with a huge crack opening up further down
    Residents are nervously watching the
    Oroville Dam and have packed their bags prepared to evacuate again if
    necessary.
    Another area of concern is the Don Pedro
    reservoir, which officials said was at 98 percent capacity on Sunday. The
    reservoir captures water from the Tuolumne River.
    In Stanislaus County, where the Don Pedro
    Reservoir is forecast to reach capacity by Tuesday, authorities are warning
    residents along the Tuolumne River 45 miles away in Modesto to consider
    evacuating voluntarily until the flood danger is past.

    Sacramento Bee.com claims the town of Maxwell
    is flooded and two stretches of Interstate 5 north of Williams were barely
    passable because of encroaching waters. Roads throughout the region were closed
    from flooding and mudslides. Reclamation districts patrolled levees, monitoring
    boils and sandbagging.
    In Colusa County, the Sheriff’s Office
    blamed local creeks and canals for the widespread flooding “due to the
    overabundance of water the last 24 hours” and announced “voluntary evacuations
    for those who felt their safety was at risk.”
    Another Northern California reservoir is at
    full capacity as a new “Weather Bomb” is pounding the area: Flooding
    is inevitable as another 6 inches of rain expected.
    Storms will resume their track across the
    region following a brief break from heavy precipitation to start the weekend.

    Precipitation will become more widespread
    and heavy throughout Monday, with the heaviest rain expected to slam Northern
    California.
