YouTube video (below) shows Lake Oroville dam main spillway exploding with extreme runoff. Authorities temporarily shut down the spillway because of massive erosion but then reopened it to prevent water from overtopping the dam, and for the first time in history had to use the emergency spillway to relieve rising water pressure on the dam. Some 200,000 residents downstream were evacuated as a precaution but now have returned home (see photos below).
Weekends from March 4 to June 4. See link above for details.
