    My thoughts to everyone down there. I have friends and family there, hope everyone is safe.

    The California Department of Water Resources said on Twitter at about 4:30 p.m. PST (0030 GMT Monday) that the spillway was "predicted to fail within the next hour."

    I don't think the dam is any danger of collapse. I believe it's the emergency spillway they are talking about, which would still dump a shit ton of water, don't get me wrong, major shitstorm. But I think the dam itself is ok.

    But, but, but....

    California says that it is in a drought.

    Funny too, California is willing to risk federal funds for not cooperating with Federal immigration but is now asking for federal funds:
