The failure of the Oroville spillway is old news by now but some of you may find the running updates of the situation byJuan Browne to be interesting.

Any resident in Southern California outside of a few municipalities that provide their own water should be particularly interested as Oroville is the headwaters of the Californian Aqueduct system.

Here is Juan's youtube channel.

Click on Videos then go back to Oroville Spillway Falure 9 Feb 2017 to start on the first of his reports on this situation.

To be continued lurk lurk

Juan is also one of us (a motorcyclist) - in fact he's a Honda CB500X fan and has some videos about the Rally Raid adventure conversion. I've been seeing his stuff since I picked one up. Cool dude.

And he (currently) flys 777ís for his day job so he has quite a selection of flight related videos.
In at least one of his videos you'll see a 2004 RT in (presumably) his hanger so he may indeed be one of us (bmwst.com member).

Juan now has his press credentials so he's able to get up close & personal with the spillway progress.
