Rain Reveals Chaos in California

Things have not been going well for residents of the erstwhile Golden State, now that they’ve gotten the rain they wanted:

Nearly 200,000 remain under evacuation orders Tuesday as California authorities work to repair an emergency spillway at the nation’s tallest dam before more rain arrives on Thursday.

In an unrelated incident in Sacramento County, residents from about 20 homes in the Tyler Island area south of Walnut Grove were ordered to evacuate Monday due to a compromised levee, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The National Weather service warned Sunday of the imminent failure of the North Fork Mokelumne River levee. …

Meanwhile, at Lake Oroville, one of California’s largest man-made lakes, water levels reached a level so high Saturday that an emergency spillway was used for the first time in its 48-year history.

Although the threat was easing somewhat Monday, crews continue to frantically work to repair damage to the spillway as more rain is expected later in the week. …

For days, officials reassured residents along the Feather River, saying there was no danger. That is until water began spilling over the emergency spillway Saturday, chewing through the slope below.

Then came the evacuation order, and the ensuing chaos.

Gov. Jerry Brown said Monday that he sent a letter to the White House requesting direct federal assistance in the emergency, though some federal agencies have been helping already.

Despite Brown’s previous vows to resist working with the Trump administration, the governor said at a news conference that he’s “sure that California and Washington will work in a constructive way. That’s my attitude. There will be different points of view, but we’re all one America.”

At least it is when California — which is on the verge of becoming a sanctuary state in seditious abrogation of federal law — has its hand out for federal money.

Meanwhile, Governor Moonbeam and the other leftist kooks in charge are flushing a staggering $10 billion down an unneeded high-speed rail project, on top of the still more staggering $25.3 billion per year they spend on the illegal aliens they have gone out of their way to welcome. Building more reservoirs, so that California is not in crisis every time it rains or does not rain, would no doubt be offensive to the environment.

If a nation as rich in resources as Venezuela could become a basket case thanks to leftist rule, so could California. Its residents should pray that Calexit never happens.

    The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.

  2. SineWaveII says:

    Give the illegals shovels and make them go up and fix it. That way the investment won’t be a total loss. And if it doesn’t work….well….

    “Its residents should pray that Calexit never happens.”

    Those of us that live east of the San Andreas fault line are praying for it to take place west of it.

  4. Torcer says:

    I’ve already heard a report connecting this with ‘climate change’ but most assuredly some will try to blame this on Trump.

  5. Anonymous says:

    How’re those whiny Cali environmentalist “dam buster” types (who like bait fish more than either irrigation or flood control) doing now? Crickets chirping, eh?

  6. Tim Nixon says:

    Well of course. California had been in a dry of historic proportions as soon as Trump was elected the heavens opened up and the rain began to fall.

  7. MAS says:

    While, BTW, California Democrats seized both houses and the governorship. They now have a super majority and our Republicans might as well just pack up and go home. We are not being blessed by Trump election but cursed by the actual God and it is well deserved.

  8. Rotohammer says:

    It is a hallmark of liberalism to be unable or unwilling to identify the true causes of problems, real or imagined. That leads to expensive and ineffective remedies.

    To Trump’s credit, he was talking about infrastructure before this. By this time during the Katrina disaster, people were asking why Bush hates black people. If Trump is the deal-maker he would have us believe, I hope he knows he has CA over a barrel here.

    Well, after all, isn’t that a job Americans won’t do?

  12. TrojanMan says:

    Export to where exactly? Which layer of hell did you have in mind?

  13. TrojanMan says:

    adding “Good riddance” to the end

  14. ramrodd says:

    it doesnt stop there!

    at one time these invaders only wanted the Southwest… i am told they want all the USA and Canada!!

  15. Memorable Event - A Deplorable says:

    This is nothing compared to the next big earthquake in San Francisco. That will cost trillions to clean up and rebuild. Please exit the USA before that happens.

  16. daPenguin says:

    I think y’all are missing the obvious one here. This is God telling RCBS to get out of California! Why they are still there is beyond me…

  17. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    It’ll save us the expense of fumigating the joint, though.

  18. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    That’s deeply unfair to those who were already in those circles.

  19. John Knoefler says:

    My idea is that he should hold their feet to the fire. Fund the dam repair but remove that amount from any federal aid the state took in for illegals. Then fund the billions for the high speed rail but the Federal government owns all rights to rider fees and takes care of maintenance and policing. Which means the feds can use INS and Border Patrol or ICE to inspect passengers who are suspicious or don’t have tickets. Illegals get instant deportation. We really should have high speed rail from San Diego with stops at Los Angeles, San Francisco and on up to Portland and Seattle and Vancouver. But the US government should own and operate it at a profit and police it.
