And Greater Seattle area had Two Earthquakes within about an Hour of each other "unrelated" -

One offshore Vancouver Island out in the Pacific, 4.2. Other pretty near us here in Gig Harbor, a 4.6.

First one was deep, second was shallow, IIRC.

According to the Sacramento Bee, it's all because of climate change:

Oh migosh! (wringing hands) won't somebody, ANYBODY, do something about climate change!

The 2nd storm didn't materialize. IDK if that will alter the course the dam due to the Spring thaw. But it definitely buys them some much needed time to get in there and do repairs.

California delayed needed repairs, because they believed global warming was occurring, and they would no longer get big storms and high snow packs in the Sierras.

Now they will come screaming for federal money for "Emergency Repairs", because global warming is causing a series of big storms and high snow packs in the Sierras.

I hope the response from Washington is "Let Al Gore pay for it".

THAT is just so much horse hockey. But about what I'd expect out of California.

It's an old video. People have since returned home. IDK if that means the dam is safe or not but I think most people believe it's safe now until the Spring thaw. Then I don't know what will happen. I don't believe anyone does.

It is a compilation of several days of video. It has been noted earlier in this thread that some video is being uploaded with later dates than when the video was shot.

We haven't had any major precipitation for about a week and not much in the forecast for the next week. The lake level is down enough to handle almost any major storms, but the main spillway repair will have to wait until spring to be on the safe side.

Better still, they have been able to start clearing the ruble from the outlet pool and should be able to use the generators in the near future lessening the flow from the main spillway.

Good to hear.
II am also waiting for the updated snowpack level readings for Mar 1.
The readings for Feb 1 were very high (150-200%) but I don't know how much is left.

After living in Ca for 32 yrs, I am used to wide variations in snow levels.
I do not get nervous until they reach 400% normal, which is where they are in the Kern basin.
