Cities and towns from 4 counties were issued orders for immediate evacuation. That's significant. It's dangerous and has potential for tragedy. From Oroville to Sacramento-- that's not a small amount of area. If the emergency spillway gives out, there's more than a handful of communities in danger. They've cancelled school/college for those in the Oroville area just in case. http://www.actionnewsnow.com/story/34486618/butte-county-releases-map-of-areas-with-mandatory-evacuation

Fuck man, read up on the Johnstown flood. It's got that kind of potential.

I'm from the area and have family there. As a kid, I toured the dam as a field trip. Trust me when I say this can be bad, as the area at risk is a part of America's breadbasket, so it's not just the impact on lives, but for feeding communities.

The Romans had an adage; give them circuses and bread and the poor will never revolt.

Deliberately wiping out the farms/ranches/orchards of gun-loving rednecks would backfire. They're already pissed that their vote for Trump means that they lose their cheap farm labor and that's got their knickers in a bunch.

The State of Jefferson is very much alive in that area, is all I'm saying.
