Evacuation Ordered Due To Dam Situation

Yesterday in and around Oroville, California, evacuations were ordered due to erosion of the emergency spillway of the Oroville dam.  Here are some related stories:

From WQAD, citing CNN, "at least 188,000 people have been evacuated".

The Los Angeles Times has live updates.

From The Sacramento Bee, there's no word as to when the evacuation order will be lifted.

From The Two-Way, water is no longer pouring over the emergency spillway.

From The Mercury News, three environmental groups reportedly warned of problems with the spillway in 2005.
