Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone evacuated downstream of Oroville Dam, as well as all of the emergency workers working hard to repair the dam in time for rains forecast for Thursday. As of today, NPR's Richard Gonzalez reported that "...the water level in the dam is falling and repair crews have been able to drop heavy rocks in key spots of the emergency spillway to prevent further erosion."
