It Is No Longer a Matter of IF, but When the Oroville Dam Will Fail
Since 2016, Paul Preston and myself have extensively covered the damage to the Oroville Dam and the danger that a dam failure would pose to the communities between Oroville and Sacramento. Despite photographic evidence, insider information and a team of observers that keep the dam under constant surveillance, Paul and myself have been called “fear mongers”. I will gladly wear that title if our efforts will culminate in the saving of lives.
In 2017, the water levels and subsequent spillage and leakage reached such a critical point that Butte County evacuate nearly 200,000 people. Despite this action by Butte County officials, Paul and myself were still called fear mongers, again. “Nothing to see here please move along”.
Relative Calm Back to Crisis
After a period of relative calm following the February 2017 evacuation, the situation at the dam has reach an unparalleled crisis which appears far worse than the conditions that led to the previous evacuation just over two years ago.
Below, there is a silent video which contains proprietary photos. Some of the photos come from the surrounding high ground, some from aerial surveillance with night vision equipment and some of the photos come from some unidentified person inside of the Department of Water Resources. How do I know there is insider involvement in this disclosure? Simple, there are parts of the dam that are off limits to the public where there are photos that are published on the Youtube video.
The dam is presently 13 feet from over-topping. However, this is not the main danger that could ultimately lead to a catastrophic dam failure.
The Identified Dangers
As previously identified on the CSS, the structural integrity of the spillway is severely compromised. The previously published photos clearly established the compromising of the structural integrity of the spillway. However, as we most recently exposed, the last line of defense, the OG Weir is in danger of over-topping because of the high levels of water on the Oroville Lake. This directly impacts the structural integrity of the dam. Additionally, the video shows that the upstream dams are at or near capacity. If anyone of these dams is compromised, the Oroville Dam will fail within 30 minutes and the spring run-off from the snow melt is under way.
The video below, derived from surveillance photos obtained between April 30-May 4th, clearly shows more severe cracks in the dam. Fissures are beginning to be observable.
Insider photos, taken inside the dam’s control room, shows a missing turbine. The dam was designed with six turbines each for expelling water (outflow) to balance inflow (eg snow runoff that would drive the water levels up. The video shows a chart that Paul and I have discussed before. The turbines are compromised to the point to where they can only expel about 10-11,000 cubic feet of water per second. The soon-to-be inflow water levels approaching the dam is catalogued in public documents (shown on the video) between 19-2,400 cubic feet per second. This is a prescription for catastrophe. The COMBINATION of all these variables, mentioned and not mentioned in this article, speaks clearly to the fact that this dam is compromised and failure could happen at any time.
The Department of Water Resources is buying time, but not much time, by beginning the construction of a pool on the other side of the mountain. This is known as a coffer dam and they are doing everything under the cover of darkness. My source as well as Paul Preston say that this buy them a week, more or less.
Motivation for the Deep State Sabotage
California is broke. The failure of the dam will result in a billion dollars of federal aid, immediately. However, the goals of the Deep State are super-imposed on this event. Many of us in the Independent Media (IM) have been saying that before a we can be militarily attacked as a nation, we must be weakened within. This is one of two events I have highlighted that could precipitate such a weakening. Remember, the CALEXIT movement, favored by former Governor, Jerry Brown, is part and parcel to the coming destruction. CALEXIT has failed to win the state as an alternative to the formation of the 51st State under Paul Preston's guidance. CALEXIT is desperate and it is controlled by the Deep State. Therefore, the failure of the dam would benefit all.
If the dam fails, one of the richest agricultural area in world would be no more. Spot famines would occur. Retail traffic would not make it out of California and would devastate the economy. This is the weakness that the Deep State desires. It is when we are in the throes of this event, that we will likely be attacked.
When the dam breaks, the water will coming rushing out of the dam will be traveling at 70MPH and create a wall of water about 30 feet high. The water will reach Sacramento in about 45 minutes. My experts tell me that the Central Valley of California would take 72 hours to evacuate. It is unknown if an evacuation order would permit the necessary time to evacuate properly.
At this point, I find myself in an ethical dilemma. I don't wish to unduly panic people. However, the video makes it clear that I would evacuate if asked to do so. At minimum, it would be wise to locate a location that is 40 feet above the ground. One should be preparing their bug out bag now. And as I told Paul Preston this morning, I would be evacuating my family right now.
This video will make it crystal clear why I am sounding the alarm.
