Oroville Dam Update Video 2-20-2017, Less Options Than 10 Days Ago

This video has a lot of important info it.  The situation is very serious, they have lost two ways to get water out of the dam, the damaged main spillway seems the primary way to get the water out now.  I  suggest anyone downstream of Oroville to watch this video.

Cavitation is likely what made Oroville spillway fail. The same thing happened at Glen Canyon spillway s this video shows at about 3:00
