OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) – Gov. Jerry Brown has not announced immediate plans to visit Oroville or meet with residents who have been evacuated. Brown spokeswoman Deborah Hoffman says the governor’s primary focus any time there is an emergency is always on the response itself, not photo ops that can pull resources away – or distract – from the task at hand. She said an emergency order was issued Sunday. Meanwhile, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and emergency operation officials met with residents at an evacuation center in Woodland, California, about 80 miles south of the Oroville Dam. Evacuations for at least 188,000 people living below the dam were ordered Sunday after officials warned the emergency spillway was in danger of failing and unleashing uncontrolled floodwaters on towns below. A key goal is to reduce the dam’s level ahead of upcoming storms forecast to reach the area Wednesday. Officials are assessing the damage to the emergency spillway now that the water is no longer spilling over the top, according to CalFire Incident Commander Kevin Lawson. He added that the integrity of the dam has not impacted. Brown said late Sunday the state is directing all necessary personnel and resources to deal with a “complex and rapidly changing” situation. A California National Guard official says they will provide eight helicopters to assist with emergency spillway reconstruction. The Guard put out a notification to all 23,000 soldiers and airmen to be ready to deploy if needed. At least 250 law enforcement officers from throughout the state are in the area or en route to help keep things safe for the people who evacuated.
