Water level drops behind Lake Oroville dam
This is easing fears that prompted the evacuation of nearly 200,000 people downstream.
As the day began, officials from the California Department of Water Resources prepared to inspect an erosion scar on the spillway at the dam on Lake Oroville, about 150 miles northeast of San Francisco.
FEMA said that an incident management team is in place and the agency activated our coordination centers. ■
