I tried to sleep here last night, and I just couldn't sleep. If you're still in town, get the hell out because I know people who say it's going to breach if the storm is heavy enough. I packed bins and loaded them into my car. I had to feed my chickens and tend to a few things. I'm not hanging out here for long. I WILL NOT STAY HERE.feedback

Leanne Fowler

We've been having a rough go. We just are going to be prepared. We're going to have stuff packed up and ready to go. Nothing is worse than being told, Get out right now!feedback

Chantel Ramirez

My car is completely packed. I will not stay here until the evacuation is completely lifted. We don't know if we'll have a house to return to.feedback

Jerry Brown

I want to thank FEMA for moving quickly to approve our requests. This federal aid will get money and resources where it's needed most.feedback

Dan Olson

We have crews working 24 hours a day. We're moving around 1,200 tons of rock an hour on the ground and it's being placed as a means of back-filling the erosion that occurred the other day. We also are using two helicopters to swing in bags of rock.feedback

Sandy Linville

Normality seems to be taking hold. People are really spent from the stresses of the last few days. Not only are you looking at businesses being hurt, but you're looking at the trickle-down effect to the individual person being hurt financially from not working. There are still about 300 people who choose not to come back and still are at the evacuation center in Chico.feedback

Margaret Johnston

You don't appreciate home until it's taken away from you. It was just frustrating. Very frustrating.feedback

Kory Honea

As a result of these actions, the need for evacuation has been significantly reduced. Looking at the current level of risk, and the predicted strength of the next round of storms and the capacity of the lake to accommodate the rain, we have concluded that it is safe to reduce the order to an evacuation warning. They have to be vigilant. They need to pay attention to what's going on. We could issue another evacuation order if the situation changes.feedback

Sandra Waters

You are always cautious when you live under a big dam, but we've always been pretty confident that it was safe and that it wasn't going to fail.feedback

Donald Azevedo

My plan is to stay here. I'm not trying to risk traffic, being stuck in floods. I'm safe where I'm at.feedback

Bruce Albert

I don't know what's coming in the future, but they haven't studied it.feedback

Bill Croyle - California Department of Water Resources

There's about 125 construction crews on point. So there's a lot of people, a lot of equipment. ... We're not holding back on addressing this issue.feedback

Crystal Roberts-Lynch

Everybody knows to go there for the Fourth of July. Then there's festivals wrapped around the salmon run. I know that somebody did not pay attention to the warning signs. Someone in charge was not paying attention. It was their job to pay attention to what was going on with the dam.feedback

Jerry Brown

I have determined this incident is of such severity and magnitude that continued effective response is beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments and supplemental federal assistance is necessary to save lives and to protect property, public health and safety, and to lessen the effects of this serious situation.feedback

Adrienne Alvord - Union of Concerned Scientists

Prior warnings to make safety improvements to the dam's structures may well have averted this crisis if they had been heeded.feedback

Jerry Brown

There are lots of reports so we have to depend on the professionals and the engineers. The earthquake shook the Bay Bridge and then, we the state, and all the different governors had to put up a new bridge. So stuff happens and we respond. This is part of the ordinary process. We'll get a lot of eyes on the problem now that we have a problem. The problem is big and we're responding.feedback

Adrienne Alvord - Union of Concerned Scientists

The Oroville Dam crisis is dramatic evidence that California must plan for more extreme weather events when designing and building water infrastructure projects.feedback

Kelly Remocal

I honestly don't think they're going to be able to do it, fix the problem. This requires a little more than a Band-Aid. At this point, they have no choice but to give it a Band-Aid fix.feedback

Joelene Hull

I don't know how safe it really is. That's my issue. I just don't know now that I see everything going on. There's a big possibility that everything might be gone when we get back.feedback

Robert Brabant

There was a lot of traffic. It was chaos. It was a lot of accidents. It was like people weren't paying attention to other people.feedback

Brannan Ramirez

Never in our lives did we think anything like this would have happened. We get people from all over the country.feedback

Brannan Ramirez

Never in our lives did we think anything like this would have happened. The lake brings in an enormous part of the economy for the town. It definitely is a people-catcher. We get people from all over the country.feedback

Jerry Brown

My message is that we're doing everything we can to get this dam in shape and they can return and they can live safely without fear.feedback

Kory Honea

Getting those people home is important to me. I want that to happen as absolutely soon as possible. But I have to be able to sleep at night knowing that they're back into that area. And if it's raining and there's more water coming in the lake, if I can't in good conscience believe that those people are safe, I haven't done my job.feedback

Pedro Mota

It's great, all of us can finally go home. They're doing their job. They're going to know more than me. I'm just going to listen to them and follow their advice on it. I'm still going to play it by ear, head back home but still have things packed and ready to go just in case they make it mandatory.feedback

Rod Remocal

This time we're going to be on call like they said. We're all coming back and pack and be ready this time. It just took a big load off me, man, just the thrill of relief.feedback

Kory Honea

There is the prospect that we could issue another evacuation order if the situation changes and the risk increases.feedback

Raj Gill

You can't even move. I'm trying to get out of here too. I'm worried about the flooding. I've seen the pictures -- that's a lot of water.feedback

Jerry Brown

These investments will build and improve: roads; levees; bridges; ports; train and public transit systems; water storage and recycling projects; as well as energy, military, veterans and emergency operations facilities and services.feedback

Jerry Brown

In the short-term, these projects will benefit businesses up and down the state and put thousands to work – many in communities with the highest rates of unemployment.feedback

Kevin Lawson

What we are working with is approximately a 30-foot (10 metre) wall of water coming out of the lake. Not the lake draining but a 30-foot wall of water. That is why we took the appropriate measures that we did and implemented the evacuation process.feedback

Dan Olson

Cal Fire is mobilizing engines, crews, helicopters and swift water crews and sending in equipment from other parts of the state to the affected areas as part of a contingency plan.feedback

Kory Honea

There was significant concern that [the erosion] would compromise the integrity of the spillway, resulting in a substantial release of water. We had to make a very critical and difficult decision to initiate the evacuation of the Oroville area.feedback

Kory Honea

Unfortunately, they couldn't advise me or tell me specifically how much time that would take so we had to make the very difficult and critical decision to initiate the evacuation of the Orville area and all locations south of that. We needed to get people moving quickly to save lives if the worst case scenario came into fruition.feedback

Peter Gleick

The risk of losing Oroville is very, very low. The consequences would be catastrophic.feedback

Nancy Borsdorf

People were just panicking. We've always loved and trusted our dam. I'm really hopeful Oroville wasn't flooded.feedback

Doug Carlson

It would appear if we can maintain the flow at 65,000 cubic feet per second, the use of the emergency spillway may be avoided.feedback

Eric See

The integrity of the dam is not jeopardized in any way because the problem is with the spillway and not the dam.feedback

Maggie Macias

We're trying to determine if the spillway is not usable do we need to use an emergency spillway.feedback
